Fancy a visit to Helsinki this summer? The joint meeting of SBL International and EABS are happening this July/August in Finland.
The call for papers closes next month on February 14, so be sure to peruse the various categories and get your abstract(s) in asap.
From personal experience (and corroborated by many other scholars), this international meeting proves to be exceedingly fruitful in terms of building relationships with international academics, hearing some of the most cutting-edge research in biblical studies, and, of course, for seeing some of the most beautiful locations in the world. The publisher books deals are also a huge attraction.
My time in Berlin last summer was a highlight of my scholarly career, and I intend to make every ISBL/EABS meeting that I possibly can (especially since this year I’m co-chairing a session).
I hope to see you and many of our other readers in Helsinki this summer.
