Call for Papers

Papers are invited for the British New Testament Society’s annual Conference which will be held at the University of Chester from Thursday 1st–Saturday 3rd September 2016.  Abstracts of not more than 300 words should be emailed directly to the Seminar Chairs by Friday 15th April 2016.

There will be no simultaneous short papers in the 2016 conference.  Instead we will be holding a plenary discussion on how New Testament Studies might flourish in the next 25 years.  We will be looking to solicit a range of responses to this question prior to the conference, and further details will be announced soon.

For conference enquiries, please contact BNTC@chester.ac.uk.

Specific Calls for Papers from each Seminar can be found in each Seminar group's page, along with the contact details of the seminar chairs, to whom enquiries should be addressed. We are pleased to announce a one year consultation on Hebrews to reflect growing interest in these areas.

Membership of the Society and attendance at the conference is open to those who fall into one of the following categories:

  1. Teach New Testament (or a cognate discipline) at a recognized HEI;
  2. Hold a doctorate in the area of New Testament;
  3. Those involved in postgraduate research in New Testament at doctoral or masters level;
  4. Have previously been in attendance at the Society's annual conference (subject to (e) below);
  5. By special permission of the committee, for one year only in the first instance, to someone who has made a recognised published contribution to New Testament studies.
