New SBL Forum

The latest SBL Forum features the following article:

Teaching the Bible in Babylon: Reflections on Joining the Biblical Studies Diaspora
Michael F. Bird

The article is a reflection on my journey from Australia to Scotland and it offers some advice to others who are thinking about moving overseas to take a job in biblical studies. There is humour within!

I liked the part where you said you have an "exotic appeal."

When my wife and I moved from California to Atlanta, it was a huge change in our life, so I can't imagine what it would have been like for you.
