"Levites and Priests in History and Tradition"
Dr. Jeremy Hutton of Princeton Theological Seminary sent along this photo of our panel at the session on "Levites and Priests in History and Tradition" at the New Orleans SBL a few weeks ago (click to enlarge). As Jeremy said in his email, the session was a great success with a nice attendance. Plans to build on this inaugural panel of the new Levites program unit are already well developed. Visible in the photo, from left to right, are: Diana Edelman, University of Sheffield (at the podium); Sarah Shectman, Binghamton University (barely visible, behind the podium); Jeremy Hutton, Princeton Theological Seminary; Mark A. Christian, Middle Tennessee State University; myself (looking pensive?); Joel S. Baden, Yale Divinity School; and, to the far right, Jeffrey Stackert, University of Chicago.
