PSCO Presentation: SBL Meeting, 2012
“Christian Origins in Retrospect and Prospect”
Day & Time: Friday, 16 November 2012, 7:30pm-9:00pm
Boulevard Room A at the Hilton Chicago Hotel (720 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60613)
Robert A. Kraft (Penn), co-founder of PSCO
As part of our reflections in honor of the fiftieth year of PSCO, this
special session during SBL will be chaired by Bob Kraft and will feature PSCO alums and
others reflecting on the most important changes in scholarship in
Christian Origins and cognate fields in the past 50 years — and the most
important changes still to come in the next 50.
Discussants will include Ra'anan Boustan, Ross Kraemer, Todd Krulak, Michael
Pregill, Phil Webster, and Megan Williams.
We plan an open discussion in which PSCO alums and others comment briefly on
their impression of  the most important change in scholarship on
Christian origins in the last 50 years,  whether/how PSCO was
involved, and  what they think is the biggest change coming in the 50
years ahead. If you're planning to be in Chicago on Friday night and are
interested — and willing to chip in your thoughts — please
email Annette Yoshiko Reed.
It doesn't seem like it will be feasible to arrange a dinner
before the session, given the scattered conference locations, etc.
Note that the location will be in Boulevard Room A at the Hilton Chicago Hotel, Chicago.
