Heading Back Across The Atlantic

TWH: I purchased my tickets this afternoon. I'll be heading back over to Spain for the EABS conference in mid-July. You can read about the conference here. It promises to be an unforgettable experience. Of course, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in Córdoba. The city itself promises to be unforgettable. Jesús Peláez sent me some pics of the famous mosque and it looks breathtaking. All of the history, a conference with world-renowned scholars, etc. . . . I mean, who could miss this opportunity? If you're going to be at the conference, please say hello. I'd love to meet you.

Here's a list of the 2015 conference workshops:
Biblical Philology in Byzantine Manuscripts 
Bodies of Communication: Physical Practices and Religious Texts 
“Colour” in the Bible 
Europe Contested:Contemporary Bible Readings performed by ‘ordinary’ readers in a European context 
Fan Fiction and the Study of Biblical Commentary and Scribal Culture 
Female Prophets in Ancient Jewish and Christian Texts 
Images of Creation in Reception History 
Masorah and the Interpretation of the Biblical Text 
The Reception of Scripture in Patristic Exegesis 
Semantics and Lexicography in Biblical Studies 
The Study of the Greek New Testament 
Textual Criticism of the New Testament, the Old Testament, and the Qur’an 
Walking through Intolerance and Tolerance
As you can see, there are lots of interesting topics scheduled. I'm ready to go.
