Research Day

Wednesday, 5 June, 9:30 am5:00 pm

Research students and staff of the University of Divinity will join together for a vibrant day, exploring the outstanding research and scholarship amongst our community across theological disciplines.

Research Day will be held at St Athanasius College’s city campus, Eporo Tower. Located in the centre of Melbourne CBD, at 285 La Trobe Street, the venue is easily accessed from Melbourne Central Railway Station and all city trams. Here, modern facilities are compellingly complimented by richly decorated art and iconography depicting historical figures of the Coptic Orthodox Church.

Plenary Sessions will include:

  • Reverend Dr René Erwich: ‘Testing the spirits. The liquid discourse as a test-case for Victorian Baptist congregations’
  • Dr Rosemary Canavan: ‘Honoured and Remembered: The Women of the Lycus Valley’
  • Kerrie Burn on library research matters
  • Professor Paul Oslington on ERA journal ranking

More information including a program for the day will be uploaded as it becomes available.
