The inaugural Trinity Symposium will occur on July 22-23, 2013, immediately prior to the annual meeting of the SNTS in Perth, Western Australia. The Symposium will explore ways in which the appropriation of Scripture was crucial in the emergence of Christianity. A limited number of elective sessions will explore topics related in some way to this central theme. Proposals for elective papers are invited from a range of relevant areas, including Old Testament, New Testament, hermeneutics, and historical theology.
Elective sessions will be 35 minutes, including discussion time. Proposals will undergo a review process, and all accepted papers will be considered for publication in a resulting volume. Presenters of elective sessions will need to register for the Symposium.
Proposals should include the following elements:
- Name, position, and institution of presenter
- Contact details
- Title of proposed paper
- 200 word abstract for the proposed paper
Proposals should be emailed to Matthew Malcolm, coordinator of Trinity Centre for Biblical Theology.
DEADLINE for proposals is January 31, 2013. Acceptance of proposals will be communicated in February 2013.
