>Subject: Call for Papers Mark Group SBL
>Dear friends of the Mark Group,
> Please find below the Call for Papers for the Mark Group for SBL
>national meeting in November, 2002 in Toronto. Our call for papers is also
>visible at the SBL website,
>but you can make a proposal directly to me at:
> The deadline for a proposal is March 1, 2002. I prefer to receive
>proposals earlier than later. Working in SBL national meetings
>administration for a few years I have found something surprising, at least
>in our sessions dealing with Mark -- the few number of proposal that we
>receive. I wonder if some people hold back from making a proposal because
>they feel that there are many paper proposals made for national meetings.
>Please, don't hold back, make a proposal! We will choose the best ones, but
>everyone who makes a proposal will get a kind response from me, I assure
> If this is the first time for you to make a proposal for the SBL
>national meetings, one of the requirements is that you submit the entire
>paper as part of your proposal. If this is not your first time you only
>have to give a summary statement of your proposal idea.
> Our steering committee will make the choices in March and inform all
>those who have submitted propsals of our decisions.
>Call for Papers
>The Mark Group invites papers on the topic of "The Markan Audience." Papers
>may employ methods that seek the "implied readers" or the "authorial
>audience", or may present new arguments regarding some aspect of the actual
>provenance of the Gospel. Send proposals in Word or WordPerfect format to:
>toshephe@... (preferred method), OR, mail or Fax to Tom Shepherd,
>Ph.D., Union College, 3800 S. 48th St., Lincoln, NE 68506. Fax number
>402-486-2895, include name Tom Shepherd, Ph.D. on faxed materials.
