Barry Presents at National Conference in Denver

Jennifer Barry, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, recently presented in two panels at the national conference for the Society of Biblical Literature and American Academy of Religion.

For the first panel, sponsored by the SBallies unit, Barry participated in a roundtable on the #MeToo movement and issues around harassment, how to be an ally to people facing harassment or discrimination, and what to do if you see or experience harassment. Each panelist gave a short presentation and then generated a productive conversation with the audience. 

During the second panel, sponsored by the Nag Hammadi and Gnosticism session, Barry reviewed David M. Litwa’s recent translation of the Refutation of All Heresies: Text, Translation, and Notes (Atlanta, 2016). Barry was invited to this panel by special request.

The SBLAAR conference was particularly productive and Barry was asked to join the steering committee for the SBL program unit on Exile and Biblical Literature due to her work on exile.
