Papers addressing any aspect of Gospels and Acts research, but particularly those addressing aspects of conference theme are now called for. Presentations will be organized into appropriate streams to facilitate good conversation amongst like-minded researchers.

The Sydney College of Divinity invites scholars, doctoral candidates, and others working in the theological and wider academic community to propose a paper related to Gospels and Acts research by 30 June, 2021. Acceptance of papers will be communicated by mid-June.

Presentations will be 20 minutes, with an additional 5–10 minutes for questions.

Guidelines for Paper Proposals

  1. The title of the proposed presentation, with an abstract of 250 –300 words, should be sent to the Director of the Centre for Gospels and Acts Research, Assoc. Prof Peter Bolt ([email protected]), by 30 June, 2021. Submissions should be accompanied by contact details: name, institutional affiliation, postal address, phone number and email address.
  2. The title of the paper and its abstract must articulate clearly the line of argument that the paper will take, indicating its contribution to research in the chosen area.
  3. Proposals should indicate that the paper will be available for pre-recording (if necessary) at least two to three weeks prior to the conference dates.

Given the uncertainty surrounding how long the extraordinary circumstances of the present global pandemic may prevail, the conference will cater for face-to-face AND online attendance, with a mixture of pre-recorded and real-time sessions.
