I'm forwarding this for Jeffrey Gibson, who is not a member of B-Hebrew but
does feel that some members of our list may be interested.


Personally, I will be attending SBL this year and would love to get to meet
some of you in person, so if anyone else who will be there wishes to, please
feel free to contact me off-list and we can arrange a meeting, either with
or without Jeffrey Gibson.

With apologies for cross posting.

It's that time of year again when the Society of Biblical Literature's
Annual Meeting is just around the corner (Nov. 21st - Nov. 24th in New
Orleans) and I begin to arrange the now traditional (13th annual!) gathering
of all those NT and Biblical and Biblically related 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,
Aramaic, ANE-2, etc. ) who will be going to New Orleans for the SBL

[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 first to
http://www.sbl- <http://www.sbl-site.org/> site.org/ and then to 

The informal E-Listers' meeting is planned for Saturday, Nov. 21st at 11:30
a.m. the Eisenbrauns Press booth (# 704) in the the New Orleans Marriott
Exhibit Hall.

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 SBLs.

As I've done in the past 12 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 at comcast.net
and let me know the following:

(a) if you will be attending;

(b) if and when and under what aegis (i.e., SBLSection and Session #) 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 at comcast.
<mailto:jgibson000%40comcast.net> net) and please use a header that says
something like "SBL e-listers' meeting".

May I ask that if you are letting me know that you are giving a paper, that
you adhere as closely as possible to the SBL/AAR Program Book Format when
you do so. That is to say, I'd be grateful if you'd compose your information
according to this formula:

Name and Institution
Section #
Title of Section
Paper title

For example:

Stephen C. Carlson, Duke University
SBL 24-112
Function of Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphal Writings in Early Judaism and
Early Christianity Section
Tuesday, 11/24
9:00 AM to 11:30 AM
Room: Bayside A - SH
Origen's Use of the Gospel of Thomas

Looking forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
