About the Parkville Seminar Series
The Parkville Seminars have been established to encourage collegiality between the colleges and HDR students, build a research culture based on expertise, peer review and modelling, and constructive academic collaboration, through an annual program of HDR Research Seminars.
The Parkville Seminars reflect the geographical location of the colleges, but also provide a cohesive and identifiable research body to enhance the learning experience of HDR students across the colleges.
Each of the six seminars in the annual program will allow a diverse mixture of research presentations from current HDR students, Honorary Researchers, faculty of the Colleges, and visiting scholars.
Seminars will take place from 2pm‐5pm on the second Monday of the month during the semester (contingent upon public holidays). For 2021, the program will be as follows:
- Mon 8th March (hosted by Whitley College)
- Mon 12th April (hosted by Trinity College Theological School)
- Mon 10th May (hosted by Pilgrim Theological College)
- Mon 9th August (hosted by Whitley College)
- Mon 13th September (hosted by Trinity College Theological School)
- Mon 11th October (hosted by Pilgrim Theological College)
Whitley College is a culturally diverse community of learners committed to practical expressions of God’s activity in the world. We wrestle together in spiritual formation through theological reflection, creative exploration and academic rigour.
Shaped by the Bible, and drawing on our Baptist heritage, we are responsive to the contemporary needs of church and society, affirming liberty of conscience in conversation with other traditions of religion and spirituality.
Our educational ethos unifies heart, thought and hands, giving priority to personal and social transformation.
