More info on Origins 2012

I just found out that there has been some kind of ongoing bug in the Saturday registration ("Bronze ticket") for Origins 2012.  It is now fixed.  Please send the word far and near that registration for the general Saturday conference is currently available.

Also, this year, we put out a call for abstracts in the area of theology.  We didn't get a very big response, but here are the titles that have been accepted for the technical session on Friday (remember, there will be additional plenary presentations on Saturday):

Hesiod’s Succession Narrative Adversarial Relationship to Genesis 1-11 - McRoberts
The Nimrod-Like Figures of Ninurta and Hercules - Weekley

This should be great!  We haven't yet had a session focused explicitly on theology and biblical studies.
