About Us

The New England and Eastern Canada Region of the Society of Biblical Literature consists of SBL members from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, Quebec, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia.

We meet annually in the spring at a conference that draws 100-150 scholars together from throughout the area.

Any SBL members may attend, but the Regional Meeting information is only sent automatically to members within the region.
