AAR-SBL Musings, take 1

I actually left San Antonio, Texas, site of this year's American Academy of Religion-Society of Biblical Literature annual meeting, on Tuesday the 23rd, but that was the beginning of a two-day drive home through the live oaks, cotton fields, mesquite, and prickly pear of West Texas, the Llano Estacado, buttes, and lava fields of NE New Mexico, and eventually home.

Other attendees were already home and blogging by then, Robert Puckett, for example. I will link to other religious-studies bloggers when I find updated entries.

The AAR-SBL annual meeting is Mardi Gras for intellectuals. Think and drink, think and drink--or at least that was my experience, somewhere in the fog of the final hours of the last night in Equinox Publishing's hospitality suite.

UPDATE: The SBL bloggers, being if anything even more textually oriented than us AAR members, have started in already.
