As in past years, the GTU will be well represented at the Annual Meetings of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature and not just in attendance.
At AAR, 19 faculty, 35 alumni, and 10 students will present, preside, and respond in 82 different sessions. At SBL, 5 faculty, 16 alumni, and 4 students will participate in 32 sessions. We could be a conference in ourselves.
If you haven't decided which sessions to attend, use our guides below which highlight the GTU's presence. We are grateful to Beth Anderson who compiled these lists.
