The Latest Biblical Studies Carnival

July 2, 2011

Chris Brady (Targuman) has posted the latest Biblical Studies Carnival. Personally, I was off the grid for most of the month and find it more useful than ever to have this little summary of the month’s activity. The comic are a nice touch.

I hope to be updating this cite more in the upcoming month as I return to the academic and research routine. Lots of thoughts on Ugaritic to throw out there (hopefully).

    Looking forward to more blogging from you, Jim.

    Apart from catching up with personal and family stuff, here are a few things I would talk with you about if we were at the same table together on a fine summer morning:

    1) Open Access Dissertations: how many are now available in Bible/ANE etc.? Has anyone made a list?

    2) Getting blogs unblocked at universities. I regularly get emails from undergrads and grad students with questions on Hebrew Bible things. I don’t know how widespread it is, but a blog like yours and mine is often blocked on university campuses (not to mention high schools). That’s my experience anyway. I wonder if there is any way to address this.

    3) Have you looked at Alan Lenzi’s Reader yet? It’s downloadable online. I plan to review it on-blog. I hope you do the same.

      Those are good ideas, John. I wasn’t even aware that blogs were blocked at some universities—I definitely want to look into that. I’m hoping to take a look at Alan’s book in the next few days; blogging a review seems quite appropriate given the open-source ethos behind it.
