Religion in the age of the smartphone
After classes today I'm off to the West Coast for much of a week! It's the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion - my first in two years, since last year's was displaced by Kathmandu - and it's in Frisco! So I'm going whole hog, including a special preconference on Religion and Media called "What's next for texts" all day Friday, and fun with Bay Area friends Monday and Tuesday (including a visit to a class of 12-year-old philosophers in Berkeley). Looking forward to sourdough, too, Chinese and Mexican food, and the Pacific. And, of course, finding out what the guild's up to these days, now that the trial separation with the Society of Biblical Literature has ended. I'll try to keep you posted.
