Keble Theology Workshop 7th February 2012

Dear Colleagues,

Please see the attached poster for the next Keble Theology Workshop, scheduled for Tuesday 7th February. This will feature a discussion and debate on the subject, ‘Can the West Live With Islam?’ Our two high-profile speakers are Prof. Nigel Biggar, Oxford University’s Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology, and Dr Tim Winter, Cambridge University’s Sheikh Zayed Lecturer in Islamic Studies.

We hope once again that this will prove highly attractive to students interested in a wide range of theological disciplines – from Oxford and well beyond. All are welcome.

Our aim with these workshops remains to set out theology’s “shop window” in order especially to attract present and potential graduate students to the discipline, and to show that engagement with theology’s subject matter is both exciting and important for today’s world.

I would be grateful if you could circulate and/or display this to any of your students interested in exploring the possibility of doctoral work in an area of biblical or theological studies. 

While we are not in a position to subsidize transport or accommodation costs for the participants, we hope some students may be able to receive assistance from their home departments. Nevertheless, anyone deterred solely by the cost of attending should please feel free to contact me.  We may also be in a position to assist in suggesting affordable accommodation.

Early booking is advisable as space is limited. As before, all that is needed to register is a brief email to for each person attending; that is enormously helpful to keep track of numbers.

With thanks and all good wishes,

Markus Bockmuehl
