SBL Annual Meeting: paper accepted
Yesterday my paper, "Two Verses Plucked From the Fire: Jude 22-23," was accepted for the 2007 Annual Meeting program unit New Testament Textual Criticism. I see it as a nice way to present some of my dissertation work, but more importantly to meet other scholars in the field including my fellow bloggers. I have heard that earlier one was allowed to present new dissertations on special signposts or at special booths at the SBL, but this is no longer possible. Anyway, this year's meeting will be held in San Diego, California, from 11/17/2007 to 11/20/2007. This will actually be the first time that I travel to the US, the flight from Stockholm takes over 18 hours—it will be a good therapy for my fear of flying.
