You are cordially invited to the first annual SBL student member luncheon, hosted by the Student Advisory Board.  Preregistration is required for this luncheon due to  limited space.

Each panelist will have 5-7 minutes to talk about their graduate school experience and discuss what they are telling their current students about navigating the field of biblical and religious studies. These presentations will be followed by smaller group discussions over lunch.
