Return to CUREMP Committee page

Annual Meeting 

This year, the Committee for Underrepresented Racial and Ethnic Minorities in the Profession (CUREMP) celebrates 25 years of service as a committee of the Society of Biblical Literature. In commemoration of this 25 year milestone, we celebrate with the Society of Biblical Literature at the Annual Meeting in November with three special events. We hope that you will join us as we reflect on CUREMP’s progression and impact on the field thus far, as well as discuss the change that is to come. Events are as follows:
