Due to COVID-19, the AAR/SBL SE 2021 Annual Meeting will be held virtually on March 12-14. Florida State University is generously providing the resources and support for that virtual meeting. A Call for Papers and a thematic statement of the conference theme are found below. Papers and panels related to the conference theme are especially welcome, but a wide variety of other topics are invited.
As the AAR/SBL SE Joint Executive Committee proceeds with planning, we will post all updates about the conference to this website, so watch here or our Facebook page for further information about the 2021 meeting. The AAR/SBL SE plans to return to an in-person meeting in spring 2022.
