Via the Secretary of the BNTS, Steve Walton-
Booking for the 2019 British New Testament Conference at Liverpool Hope University is now open. The Conference will begin on Thursday 5 September (registration from 3 pm; drinks reception 5.30 pm) and end with lunch on Saturday 7 September (lunch is at 12.45 pm).
You can register for the Conference via Liverpool Hope’s online store here. (You will be asked to create an account, but it is very quick and straightforward.) Booking is open until 5 August, but Early Bird rates are available only until 31 May (£190 en-suite; £175 shared facilities; £115 non-residential). On 1 June all the rates will rise by £20.
This year, besides the usual accommodation in student halls, we offer double rooms (hotel standard) for couples (£390 for two people, including also conference registration, all the meals, refreshments and receptions). It is possible for individuals to book one of these executive double rooms for single use (£260).
Please note that Liverpool Hope University has two campuses, Hope Park and Creative Campus; the conference will take place at the main campus, Hope Park. Travel details by various means to Hope Park are here.
This time we are excited to offer several pre-conference tours on Thursday, as well as visits to our library special collections, led by my colleague, Dr Gergely Juhasz, during free time on Friday. The pre-conference offer includes the following curator-led tours:
- Walker Art Galley 13th to 17th century paintings, with a focus on paintings with biblical themes, but also including other highlights; led by curator Xanthe Brook (Continental European Fine Art). Thursday 5 September, 11.30 am–12.30 pm. £7 per person.
All the tours are offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Availability is limited, and once capacity is reached, you will not be able to book onto a tour. If this happens, please email me here.
There are several other excellent museums in Liverpool (see here), so I encourage you to come earlier (or stay longer), and explore them on your own. If you plan to do so, and wish to book additional accommodation, or if you have any other questions, please let me know.
When you register, you will be asked if you are willing for the organisers to share your name, institution, email address, seminar choice, and research interests with other delegates. This request is to enable us to produce a printed list of delegates which will enable you to find others working in the same area as you and to contact them easily. We need your permission to share this information because of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduced last year.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Liverpool in September,
