SBL and Conference Culture

For aspiring academics, there is no better place to make yourself seen and heard than at your discipline’s annual meeting.  And even though this meeting may be a short drive away or a long fight across an ocean, the secret is that you are stepping into a sub-culture of its own kind.  In hopes that you have a great experience at these important venues and so that you might take one step closer towards a vocation that might only be expressed well in the academy, I’ve linked you below to a website full of great observations about the annual conference experience.  I’m heading off to my annual conference, SBL, in a few hours and have printed off a few pages of notes for myself to study along the way. Hope you find this link helpful!
