Society for the Study of Theology

Call for posters—now closed

Proposals for posters on projects relating to the conference theme or other research are invited from both members and non-members attending the conference. Posters should be A1 size and in portrait orientation (841mm high x 594mm wide). They will be available for viewing during the conference and one of the refreshment breaks will be a poster session during which presenters may stand by their posters and discuss their research with interested people. There will be a prize of 50 for the best poster.

You may submit a poster proposal as well as a short paper or seminar paper proposal.

The Society is committed to increasing its own inclusivity and diversity and that of the theological academy. We welcome submissions which bring the conference theme and other research 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.

The deadline for receipt of proposals is 15 FEBRUARY 2017. To submit a proposal, please e-mail the poster coordinator Ben Fulford (b.fulford@chester.ac.uk) with the following information:


1. Name
2. Institution (if any)
3. Address
4. Poster title
5. Brief abstract (about 200 words)
6. Does this proposal address issues of inclusion or diversity?

You will be notified by e-mail (to the address from which you applied) whether your proposal has been accepted by 27 February. This is in order to give you time to book and pay before the early booking rate deadline if your conference attendance depends on your proposal being accepted.


We operate a mentoring scheme for those submitting proposals for the first time or after a long break. If you would like input on a draft proposal before the final submission date, please contact one of our mentors.
