Call For Papers: Aposiopesis: Incomplete Sentences, Unfinished Thoughts + Ideas that Sputtered: The SBL Student Advisory Board invites your unfinished business. In the interest of offering a home at the Annual Meeting for intellectual risks, we ask for research with loose ends, projects that can never be published because the data trail ran out, your best well-reasoned hunches that will always remain conjecture but which live in your scholarly gut, the book you wish you could write. These papers will be presented speedily, in 10-12 minute lightning bursts, with ample time for discussion. Scholars at all stages of their careers are encouraged to submit.
