Student Religious Studies Conference (SRSC)
Friday, February 7, 2014
Olivet Nazarene University, Bourbonnais, Illinois

The Student Religious Studies Conference debuted in 2007 as an initiative of the Midwest Region SBL to encourage development of the next generation of biblical scholars. The conference provides an opportunity for students of various levels—undergraduate, seminary/divinity school, and graduate (pre-dissertation stage)—to participate actively in a regional conference in the supportive context of their peers and academic mentors. Students may present papers in various fields related to biblical and theological studies, including Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, New Testament, Second Temple or rabbinic Judaism, patristics and early Christianity, theology, historical studies, and comparative religions. For additional information, please contact Jeremy Miselbrook.
