The AAR is once again upon us starting this week in Chicago. Feel free to use this thread to tell us what panels AUFS readers will be interested, what bars we should meet up at, and to post any AUFS missed connections. I’ll be there on Sunday and would love to meet up with some folks, so feel free to drop me a line.

I’m presenting Sunday at 3 in a session about The Kingdom and the Glory. The room is McCormick Place West-176C. You will know you’ve arrived when you’re as far as possible from the actual city of Chicago.
Also, there’s a session on “Agamben, Deleuze, and Classical Orthodoxy” that I’m presiding over, 1pm Saturday in McCormick Place North-126. I’m on the steering committee for this one, and it’s a good group of papers.
I’m presenting in the very last session on Tuesday on the “radical Tillich.” My paper is on Daly’s reappropriation of Tillich. My flight arrives late Sunday, so I will miss a lot of the receptions. Will likely drop by the Syracuse reception.
Will be there for an editorial board meeting, and for the Duke reception (Sunday 9 pm, HI Ballroom B), which has in the past catered fairly well for thirsty individuals (= yours truly).
I will not be there at all, in body, mind or spirit, but you may feel free to IM, DM or text me at your leisure if you wish to talk shit about those who are.
I’m presenting Sunday at 1, McCormick Place West 178A, in an exploratory session on “the Secular,” a topic of interest to some AUFSers, I know.
I’m part of a panel discussing Jeffrey Bishop’s book ‘The Anticipatory Corpse: Medicine, Power and the Care of the Dying’ on Saturday evening from 7 PM to 8:30 PM in the PDR #6 at the Hilton Chicago. It’s a good book – though comes with a Milbank endorsement, which always unfairly affects my thinking!
I’ll be presenting in the Religion & Sci-Fi section from 1-3:30 p.m. on Saturday, at McCormick Place. I’ll be presenting a paper on the “divine creature” in Philip K. Dick’s speculative fiction.
Good to see Ken still waxing utopian (I won’t say Isaianic) at least once a year! I’ll be giving a talk in the Religion and Politics session Sunday morning in MPW 179A, entitled “The ‘Ancetral’ in Religious Politics.” It takes its point of departure from the modern Japanese coinage for religion (shukyo, ancestral teaching) and uses it as a foil to elucidate a history of religiopolitics in modern East Asia and the West. If you are bored, come cheer, jeer or sneer!
