If anyone is in Washington early for SBL, I'll be giving a paper to the Program for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown University. It is open to the public so there's no excuse. The title of the paper is 'How to, and How Not to, Convert to Judaism in Antiquity'
Further details see here and note this:
Thursday, November 16, 2006 from 12:00pm to 1:30pm, McShain Lounge Large
Incidentally, big bad Jacques Berlinerblau is Program Director of the Program for Jewish Civilization. So they'll be the chance to show the truth to two secular types for the price of one!
