PAPERS IN HONOUR OF JOHN S. HOLLADAY, JR. AT THE 2012 SSEA SCHOLAR'S COLLOQUIUM
Dr. John S. (Jack) Holladay, Jr., now a professor emeritus at the University of Toronto, is a long-time member and former trustee of the SSEA. As his colleagues in other organizations have decided to honour him this year with a Festschrift, the SSEA/SÉÉA also wished to celebrate his career and achievements Therefore, we have decided to allow those accepted for presentation at the 2012 SSEA Scholars' Colloquium to dedicate their papers to Dr. Holladay if they so wish. There will also be no specific theme (except the general Scholars' Colloquium theme of ancient Egypt & Nubia) for the papers in his honour. Those wishing to present a paper in honour of Jack Holladay at the 2012 Scholars' Colloquium must follow all the regulations set out in the Call for Papers. For more information, email thessea@...
