Pitts Theology Library’s Curator of Archives and Manuscripts, Brandon Wason, has been appointed Archivist of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL). Brandon will head efforts to provide access to and digitize the rich collection of institutional records, which were recently relocated and absorbed by Pitts in January 2018 (see here). Commenting on his appointment, Brandon explains “I’ve been a member of SBL since 2005 and am indebted to the Society for my own professional development. I’m personally committed to the preservation of the Society’s archives and excited about providing access to these materials to those researching the Society, its history, or the broader academic field of biblical literature.”

On behalf of the staff and faculty at Pitts and the Candler School of Theology, we congratulate Brandon on his appointment and look forward to future collaboration with the Society of Biblical Literature!
