METHODIST STUDIES SEMINARS
The Oxford Centre for Methodism and Church History, Oxford Brookes University, and the Manchester Wesley Research Centre have worked in partnership for several years. In 2012, the centres established a bi-annual seminar series that has now extended to include the Wesley Study Centre, St John’s College, Durham University; Wesley House, Cambridge; and Cliff College. The seminars provide an opportunity for established and emerging scholars of Methodist Studies to present the findings of their research. We conceive of Methodist Studies broadly and aim to provide opportunities for students of history, theology, literature, art, material culture and other fields related to Methodism.
The next seminar will be in Durham Wednesday 27 April 2016. The draft programme can be found here.
The inaugural seminars were held in April 2012 in Oxford and December 2012 in Manchester, the 2013 seminars in April 2013 in Oxford and November 2013 in Manchester, the 2014 seminars in April 2014 in Oxford and December 2014 in Manchester, and the 2015 seminars in April in Oxford and December in Manchester. The audio of Prof Michael Nausner's December 2015 keynote address can be found here.
