      Hello everyone,

      I've gone through the upcoming SBL program and pasted the items of
      Matthean interest below. Note please papers by Stephen Carlson and
      Jeffery Gibson too! The two Basser papers listed just below do not
      seem to be online, but I include the links in hopes that they will be
      sometime before the conference happens.

      I'd like to extend an invitation again to anyone who is giving a
      paper on a Matthean related topic to post the paper here for pre-
      conference preparation and questions. I'd also like to ask anyone
      who is going to give a post-conference report.

      Many Thanks!

      Larry Swain

      Pre-registration Required.

      Research and writing unlock the twin doors to success in the academic
      life: success in one's career and success in the classroom. In the
      competitive environment of today's academy, getting published can
      make the difference between being just another CV in a circular file
      and catching the eye of a search or tenure committee. This SBL-
      sponsored writing workshop will focus on what the scholar needs to
      know to get published. Instruction will include the following: an
      overview of scholarly publishing, how turn a dissertation into a
      book, proposal writing, finding the right publisher, and what to
      expect in the publishing process (from submitting a proposal, to
      signing a publishing agreement, to the author's responsibilities).

        For a while (2001 and 2002) the papers of the Matthew Section were posted
        at http://www.class.uidaho.edu/jcanders/Matthew/matthew_section.htm.

        I wonder, could anyone connected with the Matthew Section possibly say why
        it was decided not to do this in 2003 and 2004?

        Best wishes,

        Subject: [ematthew] Upcoming SBL



        Hello everyone,

        I've gone through the upcoming SBL program and pasted the items of
        Matthean interest below. Note please papers by Stephen Carlson and
        Jeffery Gibson too! The two Basser papers listed just below do not
        seem to be online, but I include the links in hopes that they will be
        sometime before the conference happens.

        I'd like to extend an invitation again to anyone who is giving a
        paper on a Matthean related topic to post the paper here for pre-
        conference preparation and questions. I'd also like to ask anyone
        who is going to give a post-conference report.

        Many Thanks!

        Larry Swain

        Research and writing unlock the twin doors to success in the academic
        life: success in one's career and success in the classroom. In the
        competitive environment of today's academy, getting published can
        make the difference between being just another CV in a circular file
        and catching the eye of a search or tenure committee. This SBL-
        sponsored writing workshop will focus on what the scholar needs to
        know to get published. Instruction will include the following: an
        overview of scholarly publishing, how turn a dissertation into a
        book, proposal writing, finding the right publisher, and what to
        expect in the publishing process (from submitting a proposal, to
        signing a publishing agreement, to the author's responsibilities).

        where an increasing number of newer Latino/a scholars will be able to
        exert their voices and share their insight as theorists and
        practitioners of contextual reading and teaching the Bible from
        Latino/a perspectives.
