Call for papers, British New Testament Conference
Past blogging in more ways than one.
Centre for Reception History of the Bible
An 'official' call for papers for the British New Testament Conference at the end of August should be out any day now, but just to give some early warning here. I will be wearing two hats this year: as a participant in--at least some of--the New Testament: Use & Influence Seminar run by Chris Rowland and Chris Joynes (previous papers--2003, 2004, 2005) and as co-Chair of the Synoptics Seminar (previous papers--2003, 2004, 2005). I had stepped down from the latter a year ago to join the former and spend more time with those involved in Reception issues, but the Synoptics Chair, Helen Bond, won't be in Sheffield and so I am going to still be involved for one more year. Anyone who wants to offer either a 20-25 minute paper or a 45 minute paper for either of these seminars can contact either Chris Joynes (for the Reception seminar) or myself. We'd be delighted to hear from you.
