SBL 2010 Program Book Available Online

The program for the 2010 SBL Annual Meeting in Atlanta is up and available for your perusal HERE.

I am giving two papers at the meeting this year, both on Monday, November 22.  The first is in the Pentateuch session (9-11:30 am) and the second is in the Theology of the Hebrew Scriptures session (1-3:30).  It’s always fun presenting two papers within an hour or two of one another! 

I hope some of you will be able to attend one or both of my sessions.  Here’s what the full lineup of each of my two sessions looks like:

    Hey, John! Just stumbled across your blog, and looks like I’ll be presenting my paper directly after you in the Monday morning Pentateuch section. 🙂 Also–coincidentally enough–on a hunch, I’ve been looking at the Jacob/Esau narrative a lot today, which may (or may not!) be tangentially connected to something I’m working on for my paper.

    Anyways, just wanted to say hello; but also looking to get into the biblioblog community soon, once I have some time free up. I’ve added your blog to my feed; perhaps we can share some insights sometime soon. I’ll be sure to say hello at SBL, sometime before our paper day. Have a good one!
