Prof. Richard Kalmin (Jewish Theological Seminary) will talk on his recently published book, Migrating Tales: The Talmud's Narratives and their Historical Context.
Follow the link for the abstract. As often with these things, I wish I could make it to this one. If you are in Philadelphia, don't miss it.

I noted a review of the book here.
