The History of Australian Methodism

Posted by David McEwan | Uncategorized | Thursday 27 January 2011 10:01 am

On 3 December 2010 the first of a series of Workshops was held at Wesley College, University of Melbourne, on the HISTORY OF AUSTRALIAN METHODISM. You can read the schedule of papers at http://acwr.edu.au/draft-program-for-the-methodism-in-australia-workshop\r\n\r\nThe project is funded in part by an ARC grant and is co-convened by Professor Hilary Carey, Dr. Troy Duncan (both of the University of Newcastle) and Glen O’Brien. Three Conferences will be held in all – in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide – and it is hoped that a new published history of Australian Methodism will result. The Melbourne Conference will be held in mid-2011.  Watch this space for further details.

We Need Your Research in Aldersgate Papers

Posted by David McEwan | Uncategorized | Thursday 27 January 2011 9:54 am

Our journal Aldersgate Papers is now more than year behind schedule, simply because we do not have any submissions.  The journal will carry two types of material from the next issue:\r\n\r\n1.  Peer-reviewed articles of a high scholarly standard that will be submitted to a blind refereeing process before publication.\r\n\r\n2.  Non-peer reviewed articles from postgraduate students and others that are still of high quality and worth publishing.\r\n\r\nKeep in mind that the articles do not have to be strictly in the Wesley Studies field.  They can be from across a broad spectrum of theology, history, biblical studies and the social sciences.\r\n\r\nWE ALSO NEED BOOK REVIEWS – So if you have read a good book lately write up a review and forward it to us.
