higher education, ministers, students (with a professor's nomination),

Please note that EGLBS
is not affiliated with the American Academy of Religion. While AAR
members are welcome to participate in EGLBS meetings, paper proposals on
unrelated to the Ancient Near East and/or the Bible and cognate
ought to be directed elsewhere (e.g., to AAR Midwest or
the Ohio Academy of Religion).
CALL FOR PAPERS / POSTER PRESENTATIONS OPENS 15 SEPTEMBER 2012
Paper proposals will be considered under the following categories. Select the
category that best fits your paper topic and send the necessary information to the appropriate Convener(s) by electronic mail.
order to foster wider participation, individuals are limited to
one presentation at the annual meeting. If you are
proposals, make sure to inform the appropriate conveners and indicate
which of the presentations you would prefer to give (since only one per person is permitted).
for receipt of paper proposals for the 2013 annual meeting (including any
necessary supporting materials) is 15 January 2013, and you should receive a determination of acceptance by 15 February 2013.
PLEASE NOTE THIS POLICY CHANGE:
It was agreed at the 2012 Business Meeting that those who wish to submit proposals for inclusion in the annual meeting program must be registered for the annual meeting at the time the proposal is submitted. If your presentation does not get accepted onto the program, you may withdraw your meeting registration by sending a notice to the Annual Meeting Coordinator. Such requests received by 1 March 2013 will be eligible for a full refund.
For the first time, this year EGLBS will be hosting
a poster session for those who would like to share their
research through a more visual and conversational medium. Students particularly are encouraged to consider this avenue for making an entrée into the world of professional discourse. See the Poster Session page for details.

The paper or poster proposal should be in DOC, DOCX, ODC, or RTF format and must include:
- Nature of the Presentation (Paper or Poster)

and status (undergrad, grad. student, Ph.D. candidate, faculty, pastor, etc.)
- Contact information (e-mail address, daytime telephone)
- Abstract (no more than 150 words)
NB: An excessively long abstract or failure to include one or more of these data
may result in disqualification of your proposal.

-Paper sessions will be provided with a laptop,
LCD projector, projection screen, and podium. Indicate any other equipment
you will require or, if none, so state.
-Most items in the Poster Session will be mounted on the walls of one of the meeting rooms. A limited number of display tables will be available. Indicate which type of display space you will require for your poster.
All proposals require the foregoing information. There are three contingencies which would require you to send the entire text of your
presentation as well as the proposal itself:
- This would be your
first presentation at the EGLBS;
- You are submitting to the
"Miscellaneous" section; or
- You are applying for either the
Student Paper Prize or the
SBL Regional Scholar Award.
NB: If you need to email your paper with the
proposal, please save the essay in PDF format and preview the file to
ensure that any foreign fonts, diagrams, tables, or other
printer-dependent features will appear correctly in the attachment.
If your topic does not fit naturally into one of the following categories, please send the proposal as well as the entire presentation to Annual Meeting @ EGLBS so the Coordinator can determine where it might best enhance the program.
