Duke Divinity School Summer 2011 Wesley Seminar

Posted by David McEwan | Uncategorized | Tuesday 12 October 2010 4:04 pm

Dr. Randy Maddox has reminded us that Duke Divinity School’s regular Summer Wesley Seminar is coming up again. The seminar will run from May 31 – June 24, 2011.  You can find general information and an application form here:  http://www.divinity.duke.edu/initiatives-centers/cswt/research-resources/summer-wesley-seminar\r\n\r\nHe mentions the following highlights about this year’s seminar:\r\n

    \r\n

  • First, it has been planned to coincide with a meeting of the Charles Wesley Society (June 22-24), and a celebration of the contribution of Frank Baker to Wesley Studies (on the 100th anniversary of Baker’s birth and the 50th anniversary of his move to Duke). Thus, we have particular interest in projects that touch on Charles Wesley or on Baker’s contribution – though we continue to encourage applicants on any topic touching in some way on Wesley or Methodist studies.

  • Second, we will be targeting some increased funding (from $1500 up to a total of $2500) to enable scholars to attend this seminar. In most cases, this funding will be dedicated to defraying costs of housing, food, and travel. The level of funding will be based on need and on the promise of the proposed project.
