Presenting a paper

  • Mary E. Hunt


One of the defining experiences of a career in religious studies is the first attempt to present an academic paper at a conference, notably at the AAR Annual Meeting or a regional meeting. First comes the business of getting a proposal accepted. This is done by submitting a proposal to the blind review process of a program unit of the AAR or SBL (see AAR, Annual Meeting and SBL, Annual Meeting). Once a proposal is accepted, whether for a panel presentation or for a paper, the hard work begins of writing something that will: (1) fit the time allowed, (2) keep a specialized as well as general audience awake, and (3) showcase your expertise to the max.
