My presentation went well today, so well that Dr. Medine suggested that I write up my findings and submit it for presentation at next year’s American Academy of Religion meeting. She said today that nobody has really done much scholarly-wise connecting the accreditation of Bible colleges, the pulpit-university tensions of the last quarter of the twentieth century, and the rise of places like the Ooze. I think I might just take her up on that–to give a paper at THE big national conference of an organization as big as AAR would be phenomenal. I’m certainly planning to keep in touch with Dr. JM and work on that project.
Freshman comp was a pretty typical revision day: the good groups revised for sixty full minutes, and the groups without as much oomph were done in thirty. Such discrepancies often play out when I mark up the papers.
