The Durham Conference on Ecclesiology and Ethnography
Call for papers deadline extended until 31st July.
This is the annual conference for the network bringing together scholars working on ethnographic approaches to ecclesiology. It is is a wide ranging conference, and part of the joy is discovering a diversity of specialisms and learning. Past papers have included ethnography, anthropology, systematic theology, ecclesiology, practical theology and social science approaches. Attendees range from professors to local ministers and this is an excellent place to present as a post graduate or early career researcher, or as a pastor/scholar in ministry. Learning is generously shared and critiques are supportive. We encourage single and multi-authored papers. There are two kinds of presentation: plenary (lasting around 45 minutes) and short (lasting 20 minutes). All papers are to be circulated prior to the event to enhance conference conversations and interaction. Established scholars, doctoral students as well as pastor/scholars working in church settings are welcome to propose papers. The conference takes place in September each year at St John’s College, Durham. The Conference is run in association with The Department of Theology and Religion and St John’s College, Durham University. A limited number of en-suite rooms are available, allocated on a first come, first served basis.
