State of Formation Workshop:
Writing for the Online Public Sphere
November 24, 2013 | 2-5PM | Room: Hyatt Regency- Columbia |300 Light St., Baltimore, MD 21202
At the 2013 AAR & SBL Annual Meeting, State of Formation will host a workshop for new and potential Contributing Scholars. We hope to feature between 2-3 Outstanding Contributing Scholars who post exemplary content on the State of Formation site. This workshop will serve as an excellent networking session to begin to navigate the AAR/SBL meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
Would you like to be featured as an Outstanding Contributing Scholar in the workshop? Those who are featured will also be given the opportunity to present.
All you need to do is submit a blog entry between September 4th and October 15th offering a reflection on a current event that incorporates your personal perspective and faith/ethical tradition. Please also send Honna (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ben (email@example.com) an email with the title of the post you want to be considered for this project. Please note that no travel subsidizes are available; therefore those who want to present at the workshop should already be planning on attending AAR/SBL.
The workshop will feature Rev. Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, Senior Religion Editor for the Huffington Post, Rabbi Or Rose, Dr. Jennifer Peace, top Contributing Scholars from State of Formation. Also help leading the workshop are Stepanie Varnon-Hughes (Founding Editor-in-Chief of the Journal for Inter-Religous Dialogue) and Benjamin Barer (Editor at Large) and Honna Eichler (Managing Director) of State of Formation.
If you are committed to interreligious understanding and in making your voice heard in a virtual public square with over 150,000 annual readers, join us for this interactive workshop. Both current and prospective Contributing Scholars are welcome to attend. At the workshop, you can engage in conversation with contributors of State of Formation, current featured bloggers and a panel of professionals who are providing quality content about religion in the online environment. For additional information regarding this workshop contact Dr. Jennifer Peace firstname.lastname@example.org, Honna Eichler email@example.com, or Benjamin Barer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
