Despite having finished the Ph.D., life has not slowed down; indeed, I'm still just as busy as ever...maybe even more so. In addition to teaching 8 classes at the Conversational Koine Institute this semester and launching the CKI podcast, among other things, I am preparing to deliver several papers. As a well-known presenter once said, "I'll keep doing it until I die or the audiences die." Hopefully, neither will be the case this time around but on the off-chance that you might be interested in what's on the horizon, here are some of the titles (with at least two more, which are not listed here, waiting to be confirmed):
* "Never Trust a Greek...Professor: Revisiting the Question of How Koine was Pronounced" (Stone-Campbell Journal Conference, Knoxville, TN - March 14-15)
* "Acknowledging an Overlooked Element in Markan Christology: 'Preparing the Way' for a Reconsideration of Mk 1:1-4" (Stone-Campbell Journal Conference, Knoxville, TN - March 14-15)
* "Erasmian’s Role In Linguistic Genocide: Issues Concerning Orality, Morality, and the Pronunciation of Koine Greek" (Theological Educators Forum on Orality, Wilmore, KY - April 3-4) - *Note: This essay will be collected for publication.
* "ἡ καινὴ σχολή· Communicating Ancient Greek Via Modern Technologies" (Annual Meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature, San Diego, CA - November 22-25) - *Note: This essay may be collected for publication.
