Upcoming Speeches and Presentations



A scene from one of my earlier presentations


In response to deafening public demand — somebody asked once, several years ago — I’ve taken to occasionally posting my schedule (to the extent that I know it) of approaching speeches, panels, presentations, and the like.  Here’s what I’ve got at this point:


Thursday and Friday, 1-2 August 2013

Annual FAIR Conference

Utah Valley Convention Center, Provo, Utah


Friday, 16 August 2012

Graduation convocation speech for Brigham Young University’s College of Humanities

8 AM, Marriott Center, BYU


Tuesday through Friday, 20-23 August 2013

BYU Education Week

The Reasonableness of Faith

T          “In the Beginning, God . . .” (Genesis 1:1)

W         In the End, Mind Continues

Annual Summerhays Lecture on Science and Religion

St. Louis Chapter of the BYU Alumni Association

“The Middle East”

Topic in flux. (Was to have been “The Middle East,” but circumstances have changed.)

A conflict has been discovered, so this may need to be dropped from the calendar


Saturday, 19 October 2013

Keynote address, Book of Mormon Archaeological Foundation

Utah Valley Convention Center, Provo, Utah


Friday or Saturday, 22-23 November 2013

Paper on Qadi ‘Abd al-Jabbar’s Critique of Christian Origins

Sixth annual meeting of the Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa

Key Bridge Marriott Hotel, Washington DC

(The conference schedule hasn’t yet been issued, so I cannot yet narrow down specific date and time.  Incidentally, though, I’ll probably be staying through Sunday, so — and I realize that this sounds perilously close to self-promotion — there is a chance that I could do a fireside or something of that sort in the DC area that night, if somebody there reads this and cares.)

    I’m so glad that the Annual Summerhays Lecture is recorded and made available on the Internet!

      I’m glad, too. It expands the potential audience enormously.

      But, alas, it also puts the pressure on me, in this case, to come up with something worthy of the audience’s attention.
