Society for the Study of Theology


"Welcome to the Society for the Study of Theology's website. Our next annual conference, on Theology, Culture and Unbelief, takes place at the University of Nottingham from 09-11 April 2018. We are looking forward to hearing papers from J.Kameron Carter, Miroslav Volf, Jon Coutts, and Julian Baggini.

My Presidential Address will be entitled 'Mystery, Belief and Unbelief' and Robert Beckford will also discuss his book Documentary as Exorcism with Carol Tomlin, Chris Shannahan and William Ackah.

The conference is for anyone with graduate-level interest in theology. We are able to offer numerous opportunities for presenters to give either a short paper or a seminar paper and mentoring support is available for those submitting proposals for the first time or after a long break.

We are also grateful to I.B.Tauris publishers for co-sponsoring our Opening Conference Reception and to Brill and Kohlhammer Verlag for co-sponsoring our Conference Reception - where they will also launch their co-published trilogy 'Geschichte des globalen Christentums' and 'History of Global Christianity'.

Karen Kilby, President
