I've been invited to speak about blasphemy at Atheists Without Borders, the 2010 North American conference for Atheists Alliance International. The conference takes place in Montreal in October, and should be a great experience. The Conference's website is here. I've always enjoyed visiting the city and there's a great line-up of speakers on a wide variety of skeptical and freethinker topics--in other words, this will probably be the first academic conference I've attended where I actually want to go to the panels. For my part, it'll be challenging as well--they've given me 45 to 60 minutes to speak, followed by a half hour of questions; I'm used to talking about blasphemy for about 15 minutes while on a panel with a bunch of other people. It'll actually be nice preparation, however, for any job talks I might be asked to give during the Fall law school hiring process.
