    Virtual Conferences, Working from Home, and Flying Kids

    Like many conferences this year, the annual American Academy of Religion­/­Society of Biblical Literature conference will be virtual. HUP’s Editorial Director, Sharmila Sen, who normally attends the conference, decided to check in with some of the people she would have otherwise seen there in person.
