Research Day 2018

150 Research students and staff of the University of Divinity joined together in a vibrant day to explore the outstanding research and scholarship amongst our community across theological disciplines. Staff and students alike were inspired by 44 presentations, including plenary sessions given by Reverend Dr Robyn Whitaker and Reverend Dr Geoff Thompson.

Research Day was held at St Athanasius College’s brand-new 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.
