Religion in Late Antiquity workshop, Knoxville (April 30-May 1)

I hate it when I'm horribly late getting things posted. I've had to delete a few things this week that I didn't get posted here before they expired. My apologies to all. But this one is still good:


All,
Please note that there is now a conference hotel discount available to any out-of-town participants if you make your reservation by April 16.16.
Details are available under the accommodations link on the workshop website: http://web.utk.edu/~marco/southeast/workshop.shtml

Dear Colleagues,

Please help spread the word, and I hope that those of you who live within striking distance of Knoxville will attend:

Southeast Regional Workshop: "Religion and Culture in Late Antiquity"
April 30-May 1, 2010
University of Tennessee, Knoxville

This regional workshop is funded by the American Academy of Religion, the Marco Institute (UT), the Department of Religious Studies (UT), and the Humanities Initiative (UT), and will be a chance for all scholars of religion and scholars of late antiquity to discuss the work in progress of four prominent faculty from our region. We are pleased that Elizabeth Alexander (University of Virginia), David Hunter (University of Kentucky), Robin Jensen (Vanderbilt University), and Jeremy Schott (University of North Carolina, Charlotte) have agreed to present their work for discussion. We welcome and encourage all interested faculty, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate students to attend. Papers will be circulated ahead of time to everyone who expresses interest in attending.

N.B.: If you plan to attend the workshop, please email me, Tina Shepardson: cshepard@utk.edu. More details will be forthcoming.

very best,
Tina
