Duke's Graduate Program in Religion is at the top of the NRC rankings. In other news, Duke fails to mention their reception in the SBL program book

Good news and bad news.

The good news: while there are different ways of reading the data, the recent study of U.S. doctoral programs by the National Research Council ranks Duke's Graduate Program in Religion either at #1 or something close to it. The significance of all this will be debated, no doubt.

The bad news: according to the SBL program book there is no Duke reception. There is a rumor, however, that the reception is at this place and time:

11/21/2010 (Sunday)
9:00 PM to 11:00 PM
Hyatt Regency
Room: International North

Can anyone confirm this?

Update: as you can see in the comments, this is the correct place and time.
Thanks to Lisa and Mark!


  1. Yes, it's now in the online program book. Daniel Kirk emailed me last week about it and Lisa got straight onto SBL about making sure it went into the corrected program.

  2. Excellent. Thanks to Lisa, Mark, and Daniel!!
