Too Many Ideas

December 9, 2009

This year I didn’t submit a paper for SBL Regional. I’ll be chairing the Torah section; I’m finishing the dissertation; and I have another project due in May on some Mesopotamian texts. All that while teaching three classes in the spring will be a full plate.

However, I can’t say I’m happy with passing up a chance to throw some new ideas out there. There are a lot of areas of research that my dissertation and teaching responsibilities have brought to my attention. I have two abstracts sitting on my desktop, both on rituals in the Deuteronomistic History.  I simply don’t have the time to work these ideas up into papers for the spring.

Perhaps I’ll wind up giving multiple papers in Atlanta — along with hocking my wares on several other fronts. Too many ideas and not enough time.
