The SBL  International Cooperation Initiative's (ICI) mission is to foster biblical scholarship and to facilitate mutual cooperation among colleagues. In that spirit, SBL is establishing databases that will allow scholars who would like the experience of volunteer teaching in other countries and institutions that can accomodate them to connect. Individual scholars and schools will have the information needed to contact each other and make their own arrangements. Scholars and institutions that wish to participate should email Charlie Haws.
 


See this new resource on pedagogy and methods of interpretation in introductory Bible courses published in Teaching Theology & Religion, Volume 19, Issue 2, April 2016 by Collin Cornell and Joel M. LeMon of Emory University. This study identifies the dominant modes of biblical interpretation being taught in introductory Bible courses through a qualitative analysis of course syllabi from three institutional contexts: evangelical Christian colleges, private colleges, and public universities. Some of the work in the study derives from research Dr. LeMon conducted as an employee of the Society, and the study cites the Annual Meeting and the Society's list of subject areas in identifying interpretive methods (see a full list of these subject areas here).
