Hoping to snag a button? Then find us in Baltimore.


Craig Martin will be responding at North American Association for the Study of Religion Panel 2: Critically Engaged: Graduate Pedagogy in the Introductory Classroom (P22-209) on Friday, 1:30 – 3:30 pm in the Hilton Baltimore (Blake Room).


Craig Martin will be presiding at the NAASR Presidential Panel: On Teaching Religion (P23-203) on Saturday, 1:00 – 3:30 pm at the Marriott Inner Harbor (University Ballroom 3-4).

Combining research, writing, and a several-day-long “Star Trek: The Next Generation” marathons, Merinda Simmons will be conducting an experiment of delivering buttons through transporter beam from Tuscaloosa to somewhere in the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Lobby, sometime Saturday between 4:00 – 6:00 pm. (Note: avoid the lobby if you’re not confident in the accuracy of first generation transporter technology.)


Leslie Dorrough Smith will be presiding over “Developing Your Inner Snark” on Sunday, 1:00 – 3:30 pm, somewhere in the Hilton Baltimore Lobby Bar. You’ll also recognize her as the one who is knitting between — if not all throughout — every session that she attends.

Vaia Touna will be passing out buttons at the Kitchen Bar in Thessaloniki, Greece, around 5:00 – 7:00 pm (EET). It’s first come, first serve, so don’t be late! And be sure to get a frappé while you’re there! (You get two buttons if you buy her one.)


Monica Miller and Steven Ramey will be presenting at the American Academy of Religion Panel, “Discussing the ‘Nones’: What They Say about the Category of Religion and American Society” (A25-328), which is part of the Religion and Popular Culture Group in the AAR, on Monday 4:00 – 6:00 pm in Convention Center 322.

Russell McCutcheon will be presenting at the Society of Biblical Literature Panel, “What Does It Mean to ‘Explain’ Earliest Christianity?” (S25-330) on Monday, November 25, 4:00 – 6:30 pm at the Convention Center 334. His paper is entitled “Why Do You Seek the Living Among the Dead? (Luke 24:5)”, and the panel is part of the Redescribing Early Christianity group in the SBL.

If none of these times or locations work, then there’s a really
good chance that you can find one of us wandering
around the book display or hanging out
at some of the hotel bars…

Consider yourself told.
