Recent Booth College Sydney Faculty Research Seminar

Posted by David McEwan | Uncategorized | Friday 13 May 2011 9:40 pm

Booth College, Sydney held its second Faculty Research Seminar on Monday 2nd May at the college. ACWR postgraduate Fellow Adam Couchman presented a paper on “Evil, the Fall and the Human Condition according to Gregory of Nyssa.” Janice Rees presented a paper on “Struggled for and Not Possessed: Language for the Divine and the Apophatic Turn,” which has just appeared in the current issue of  St Mark’s Review.\r\n\r\nBooth is developing a high quality faculty and the Research Seminars are an opportunity for them to create a supportive and collegial atmosphere for the sharing of research. Lecturers at Booth are expected to be both teachers and scholars – aiming for excellence in both classroom teaching and original research to support that teaching. These seminars are designed to encourage them in that\r\nprocess and are a great opportunity for professional development.\r\n\r\nThe seminars are open to the public and the next will be held on 8 August 2011 (in Classroom 3) with the presentation of the following two papers:\r\nAlan Harley, ‘Fifty Years of Doing Theology: A Theologian’s Retrospective.”\r\nSteve Wright, ‘Unveiled in Flesh: Jesus as the Revealed Form of Divine Beauty.”
