Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity at AAR/SBL 2019

RELIGION PROF: TELA at #AARSBL19. James McGrath gives us a belated, but welcome report on a session of the Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity Group at the AAR/SBL meeting in San Diego in November of 2019. As James notes, I presented a paper at a joint session of TELA and MEGA. My paper was presented in absentia, for reasons having nothing to do with the current concerns.

At present, the AAR/SBL meeting is still scheduled to occur in Boston in November of 2020. But the International Meeting of the SBL, scheduled for July at the University of Adelaide in Australia, has been canceled. We will just have to see how things look as November approaches. If we don't meet in Boston, I agree with James that we should aim for remote delivery.
