Yesterday I heard most of the session below. Some of the speakers were very good. Note that here and in other sessions there are readings available, even if you don’t register for zooming.
(-) 9:45-11:45am — Freedman Panel, organized by the Department of Middle East Studies of the University of Michigan: Who is my John the Baptist? Contemporary Scholarly Portraits
• Chair: Kelley Coblentz Bautch
• Speakers: Joel Marcus, Joan Taylor, Edmondo Lupieri, Rivka Nir, Albert Baumgarten, Gabriele Boccaccini

Today I’ll probably miss it, because at work (I’m not retired, pace S.) there’s a different scheduled zooming.
