In other ETS related news, Michael Bird observes that only a handful of women are presenting at this years ETS:
I have just noticed that there are about 700 hundred papers being delivered at ETS this year and only eight of them will be delivered by women. What is more, I think I actually know half of the women presenters. Now maybe there are more, I looked up the index in the ETS book and some names like “Leslie” can be unisex, and I don’t know the gender of most Asian names. But even give or take a few, this would mean that women presenters make up only 1% of the papers at ETS. This is not satisfactory.

Speaking of female presenters, if you’re going, be sure to check out “Psalm 24:4 and the Decalogue: A Mutually Illuminating Relationship?” This paper is being presented by fellow blogger Carmen Imes from the blog Seminary Mom.
For those of you who are going, what papers are you looking forward to?
