As for me, I'm all for frankfurters... but the Frankfurter Schule? Nein, not so much.
CALL FOR PAPERS
BIBLE AND CRITICAL THEORY SEMINAR 2014
Deadline for proposals: 31 August 2014
|Im nächsten Jahr bei Hogwartz!|
Please send paper proposals of 150-200 words to:
Roland Boer: Roland.Boer(at)newcastle.edu.au and
Deane Galbraith: relegere.reviews(at)otago.ac.nz
Dates for Seminar: 10-11 December 2014
Venue: The Original Robert Burns Pub (“The Robbie”), 374 George Street, Dunedin, New Zealand
The Bible and Critical Theory Seminar returns to Dunedin in what is the tenth year of publication of the Bible and Critical Theory Journal and the seventeenth year in which the Seminar has been held. We will meet in the Poetry Corner at the Robbie Burns Pub, which we will have to ourselves until joined by regular patrons in the late afternoon. We will also make our way to Eric Repphun’s new venture, the Governor’s Cafe, for a delicious lunch.
Please also note that the BCT Seminar will follow the annual meeting of the Aotearoa-New Zealand Association of Biblical Studies (ANZABS), also to be held in Dunedin, at the University of Otago, on 8-9 December 2014.
While there is no official accommodation and a range of options around the city, for those comrades who appreciate the conviviality of low-cost communal living, I (Deane) recommend Hogwartz Backpackers, a short ten-minute walk to the Seminar venue and, from 1872 until 1999, residence of the Roman Catholic bishop. Prices start from NZ$29 for a shared room with 4 to 6 beds, and it is approximately NZ$63 for a single room (http://www.hogwartz.co.nz/accommodation/hogwartz-rooms-and-prices).
