SBL Annual Meeting 2015

I'm off to Atlanta to attend the SBL Annual Meeting.

I am giving two papers this year. The first paper is entitled "Do Paratexts Matter? Transmission, Re-identification, and New Philology" and, the second "Digitization and Manuscripts as Visual Objects: Reflections from a Media Studies Perspective" (More information below and abstracts here).

If you want to meet me in Atlanta, you'll find me in the crowd at the Nordic Universities Reception (Sunday 22 November, 7:00-9:00 pm, at the Marriott Marquis C) from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.
