The Society for the Study of Theology's sixty-fifth annual conference is 'Redeeming Human Nature', and the questions we shall be addressing will include: What is the relation between grace and sin? How should theologians understand human dignity? What is the work of Christ in redemption? How might redemption be experienced in societal and pastoral contexts? What is human nature in theological context? Plenary speakers will include David Brown, Sarah Coakley, Louise Lawrence, Alistair McFadyen and Michelle Gonzalez Maldonado.

The Society is committed to increasing its own inclusivity and diversity and that of the theological academy. We welcome paper submissions which bring the conference theme into conversation with issues such as gender, sexuality, ability and disability, ethnicity and race. We also welcome submissions from postgraduate students, early career researchers, independent scholars, and those working outside the academy. For details of our new mentoring scheme, visit www.theologysociety.org.uk/mentor.asp.
Our Society operates a generous BURSARY FUND in order to make the conference as accessible as possible. Recipients of bursaries receive a credit note which can be offset against the cost of the conference fee, accommodation, and meals, but please note that no bursaries are available to offset the cost of conference travel. To apply, visit www.theologysociety.org.uk/bursary.asp. Donations to the fund are most welcome and may be made either when booking or by increasing your annual subscription.
The deadline for receipt of all paper proposals and bursary applications is 27th January.
