PAPERS IN HONOUR OF JOHN S. HOLLADAY, JR. AT THE 2012 SSEA
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.
Not only has he been a colleague of virtually every President of the SSEA
since the 1970s, he has also been a mentor to numerous former Trustees.
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
