There is a plenary speaker for each of these sections:

We will also have a special invited lecture from Dr. Grant Macaskill

Peter, we're hosting our Biblical Studies conference just two days earlier at the University of Birmingham on texts and reception history. Might we make a post out of this as well? Thanks.
