The upcoming European Theology Teachers Convention will be organised 22–26 March 2023. The Hungarian Adventist Theological College will be hosting the conference in Budapest.
We expect to be able to hold the conference in-person, but the Covid-19 pandemic may necessitate contingency plans that will be developed and communicated as the situation and needs dictate.
The theme for the conference will be:
Tensions, Conflicts, Wars: ‘Storms’ in the Bible, Church & Society
We are living in a world burdened with tensions, conflicts, and wars. Ethnic, cultural and religious ‘storms’ are also found in the Bible. They were part of the experience of the people of God in the Old Testament and in the early church times likewise. Adventism in the 21st century also faces tensions and conflicts on number of horizons, whether theological, ethical, church political, cultural or pastoral – both on local and global levels.
We are inviting papers from the area of biblical studies, theology (including missiology, ecclesiology, eschatology), anthropology, epistemology, pastoral theology, religious history, ecology, ethics, social justice (possibly including gender studies, critical race theory, postcolonial studies), and societal conflict.
Papers proposals should have a working title and not exceed 200 words in length. The deadline for submission is 30 September 2022. Proposals should be sent to Richard Michelisz (firstname.lastname@example.org) in MS Word format. Notifications regarding proposals will go out in October 2022. Presenters are limited to thirty minutes for presentation (approximately 3,500-words), with additional time for questions and discussion of the paper.
