A Special SBL Session You Won’t Want to Miss
by James Tabor
Come to Chicago in November, the weekend before Thanksgiving, and gather with 20,000 academics and laypersons interested in the Bible, Archaeology, and the academic study of Religion.
One of the many sessions you will not want to miss:
Blogger and Online Publication
4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Room: W474b – McCormick Place
Theme: Media Relations and Popular Archaeology
This is a special session with filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici and James Tabor discussing archaeological claims and the role the popular media plays with scholarship. Christopher Rollston and Robert Cargill will join Jacobovici and Tabor to discuss the role of popular media in scholarship.

For information on the annual Society of Biblical Literature Meeting in Chicago, November 17-20, 2013, and how you can register to attend see here. This is only one of hundreds of sessions, plus the American Academy of Religion, the American Schools of Oriental Research, and the Biblical Archaeology Society Bible and Archaeology Fest meet over that same week and weekend in Chicago just before Thanksgiving. This is the event of the year for most of us who work in my academic field of Bible and Archaeology and it would be great to see many of my “nonspecialist” blog readers in my favorite city in the USA.
