Correspondents Wanted: American Academy of Religion Conference in Atlanta

Anyone interested in a writing a post or two (or three or four or five...) this weekend from the American Academy of Religion meeting in Atlanta?

I know it is a little late since the conference begins tomorrow, but I would love to get some reports about what is going on so that we can keep readers of The Way of Improvement Leads Home informed.  I can't pay correspondents, but I can give them a byline here at the blog.

What am I hoping for out of these posts/reports? Frankly, anything. Let the spirit move you. I would love to get general observations, reports on sessions you attend, job market updates, or any other kind of stuff you might have the time or inclination to write about. Anything on American religion would fit with what we do here.

Feel free to be as creative and journalistic as you want. If at all possible I would like to get some stuff as the conference is going on, but general summaries would also work. Feel free to write as few or as many as you would like. I will try to get stuff posted here in real time (or thereabouts) during the conference.

If your interested, shoot me an e-mail at jfea(at)messiah(dot)edu and we can get the ball rolling.  I the meantime, check out our posts from the 2015 meeting of the American Historical Association to get an idea of what some of our correspondents at that conference wrote about.
