Better late than never. This fall I’ll be traveling to Atlanta, GA to present an academic paper at the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS). Most people start doing this while still in the PhD program but this will be my first conference and first time to read a paper.
My First Theological Conference
The annual conference for ETS takes place this year in Atlanta, GA from November 17 to 19. The program theme for this year’s conference is Marriage and Family so I decided to submit a paper on Gen 2 titled: A Man-Woman Shaped Void in the Heart of Creation: A Muthos-logical Reading of Gen 2 in Relation to Gen 1.
I’ve mentioned before that research is an important aspect of a professor’s job. It’s crucial for our school’s accreditation, it helps me to have influence in how we all understand Scripture, and, at a more practical level, it will help me to have influence on the direction of our own seminary here in Slovakia.
Toni Brown says
Are you coming to Illinois, or do I have to come to Atlanta.
Todd Patterson says
I’m afraid I’m going to be there just for the conference and then turn around and go. It’s hard to miss teaching during the semester.
