8th Annual E-Lister's gathering at SBL
- Apologies for cross posting!
It's that time of year again when the Society of Biblical Literature's
Annual Meeting is just round the corner (Nov. 20th-Nov. 23rd) and I
begin to arrange the now traditional (8th annual!) gathering of all
those NT and Biblical e-list members (i.e. XTalkers, B-Greeks, and
members of Corpus Paulinum, John Lit, Kata Markon, Biblical Studies, T-C
List, Ioudaios, Synoptic-L, etc. ) who will be going to San Antonio for
the SBL conference.
[For those of you who do not know what the Society of Biblical
Literature is and/or are unfamiliar with the SBL Annual Meeting, go
and then to
The E-Lister's meeting is planned for Saturday, Nov. 20th at 11am in
(as always) the Exhibition Hall and (with thanks to the stalwart
representatives of the Gramcord Institute) at the Gramcord Institute
As attendees of previous meetings know, this gathering is a great
opportunity to place a face to an one hitherto known only as an
electronic personality and/or to renew acquaintances made at previous
As I've done in the past 7 years in arranging this meeting, I'd like to
get an advance head count of those of you who are intending to attend
this year's SBL.
I'd also like to know who among the intended attendees is presenting a
paper during the conference (and at what time and place and within what
SBL group or section and under what title).
So this is the first call to write me OFF LIST at jgibson000@...
and let me know
(a) if you will be attending;
(b) if and when and under what aegis you are presenting a paper,
(c) your paper title, AND
(d) what you consider to be your "home" E-List.
I'll keep everyone updated as the info comes in to me.
Again, write to me OFF LIST (jgibson000@...)
Looking forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
