Research Seminars and Training

Whitley Research Seminars 2020

Whitley College offers Research Seminars for HDR Students and their supervisors throughout the year.

A copy of the remaining programme for 2020 is available for download here. Until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, all seminars will be available in online mode via Zoom.

As restrictions are lifted, we will return to on-campus seminars with a livestream available for all Seminars via Zoom.

If you do not normally receive the regular emails advertising research seminars, please contact our Director of Research, Dr Darrell Jackson and he will forward the necessary Zoom link details.

Where the presenter has given permission, research seminars will be recorded and copies will eventually be available for viewing here.

Parkville Seminars 2021

Throughout 2021, Whitley College will collaborate with faculty from Trinity Theological College and Pilgrim to present a shared series of Research Seminars. Details will be made available during the final semester of 2020, but a series of six research seminars are anticipated, two of which will be hosted on the Whitley campus.

All Parkville seminars will also be live-streamed via Zoom.

University Research Day 2021

The University of Divinity typically hosts an annual research day for all HDR students and faculty during the first week of June. Dates will be publicised here as soon as the University has announced its 2021 schedule. The day is an excellent opportunity for students and faculty to present the fruit of their ongoing research in a series of seminar presentations.

Centring the margins 2021

In addition to its involvement in the Parkville Seminars Whitley remains committed to research concerns that address the College’s long-standing commitment to scholarship that emerges at the margins of the dominant, western academy. As appropriate, Whitley will host research seminars that allow HDR students and faculty to access excellence of scholarship emerging from the majority world, postcolonial studies, LOTE/ CALD scholarship, and critical and queer scholarship that intersects with the study of theology through HDR.
