Paul Middleton Writes

The British New Testament Conference 2016
The University of Chester, 1–3 September
CALL FOR PAPERS

Papers are invited for the British New Testament Society’s annual Conference which will be held at the University of Chester from Thursday 1st–Saturday 3rd September 2016. Abstracts of not more than 300 words should be emailed directly to the Seminar Chairs by Friday 15th April 2016.

There will be no simultaneous short papers in the 2016 conference. Instead we will be holding a plenary discussion on how New Testament Studies might flourish in the next 25 years. We will be looking to solicit a range of responses to this question prior to the conference, and further details will be announced soon.

Booking details will also be announced in early March.

Specific Calls for Papers from each Seminar can be found below, along with the contact details of the seminar chairs, to whom enquiries should be addressed. We are pleased to announce a one year consultation on Hebrews to reflect growing interest in these areas.

Much more is available on the BNTS facebook page.

International Conference: John Owen, 31 August 2016

leave a comment »

‘John Owen: Between Orthodoxy and Modernity’, Theological University Apeldoorn, The Netherlands, August 31 – September 2, 2016

This international conference, co-organized by five universities from the Netherlands and Belgium, marks the 400th anniversary of the birth of the English Puritan John Owen (1616–1683). As a leading orthodox Reformed theologian he lived on the brink of a new age. Therefore his theology is important for understanding the developing mutual relationship between orthodoxy and the modern context.

First UK Philo Colloquium

It is our pleasure to announce that the first UK Philo Colloquium will be held Thursday 21 July 2016 at Glasgow University from 10:00–4:30. This meeting will be an opportunity for those working on Philo’s treatises or interested in Philonic studies to meet with other scholars in the UK (or further abroad) and discuss their research. This event is open to postgraduate students and scholars alike and, depending on the number of attendees, each will have an opportunity to share some of their current work.

Speakers will include: Sean Adams (Glasgow), Hindy Najman (Oxford), and Joan Taylor (King’s College London)

There is no cost for this event, although notice of attendance is required. There is also a small bursary fund for postgraduate students wishing to attend to help offset some of their travel costs.

If you are interested in attending or have any questions, please contact Sean Adams (sean.adams@glasgow.ac.uk).

The Annual Hawarden OT in the NT Conference Program

Via the undersigned:

I am delighted to attach the first draft of the programme for the 2016 Hawarden Seminar on the OT in the NT which I hope will whet your appetite for this year’s conference which will focus on methodology. If you are intending to come, please contact enquiries@gladlib.org to book and let me know when you’ve done that so that I can update my participants list. Everyone is welcome to bring copies of relevant new books and articles to display, and you will see that there is time available on the Thursday night to discuss any new publications, projects, or other developments in which you are engaged. If anyone is not able to make this year’s seminar but would like to send me any details or flyers about such publications, I’ll be glad to give you a mention and pass those around.

We did agree at last year’s seminar that we would keep the length of presentations as short as possible to allow maximum time for discussion. Some colleagues have therefore been asked to present in a 10 minute slot, and I’d be grateful if all other contributors kept their input within the range of 25 – 40 minutes. To facilitate our discussion and make it easier to keep the oral presentations shorter, all presenters are invited to let me have a fuller version (albeit still in draft form if necessary) of their paper in advance to circulate to all those who have booked for the conference if you wish. I intend to send around all the papers I receive in one go on Monday 29th February to avoid numerous emails and so that everyone knows when to expect them and can set aside time to read them. If you cannot get your full paper ready by that date, you are welcome to bring your own copies to distribute during the conference if you wish (but this is not obligatory).

I’ll be in touch again with confirmed participants nearer the time. In the meantime, all best wishes for the coming term,

Professor Susan Docherty
Professor of New Testament and Early Judaism/Head of Theology
Newman University Birmingham
