SBL Presentation: A Date and a Time

Finally the SBL Programme Handbook for this year's Annual Meeting is up and running.  Here are details of my presentation.  Best news of all is that it is on the Saturday, thus enabling me to get the thing out of the way.  I have never been first presenter on an SBL panel, so am looking forward, I think, to seeing whether that makes it a better or worse experience:
