It seems that we may as well make a start to planning the dinner and get-together for scholarly bloggers at the AAR and SBL annual meeting in Atlanta in November. In the past we have referred to “bibliobloggers” in the title of the event, but I want to make a point of using more inclusive language, and inviting those who blog about any topic related to religion and who are members of either AAR or SBL.
I’m thinking that Sunday evening November 22nd, around 5pm, might be a good time for those who want to grab dinner and/or drinks. But if there are any publishers that decide they would like to host us – or if there are bloggers who would prefer to simply gather at a publisher’s reception that we all plan to attend anyway – then those alternatives would be worth pursuing.
But given that schedules fill up fast, I thought I would open the conversation about it. Please indicate in a comment whether you are attending SBL, what your blog is and what scholarly areas you blog about, and what your preference is regarding a day and time for this year’s Bible and Religion Bloggers’ Dinner and Drinks.
To whet your appetite, here are some photos from previous years’ gatherings:
