Melbourne College of Divinity Centenary Conference

The Melbourne College of Divinity celebrates its centenary in 2010.  Details of a special centenary conference are now becoming available. The conference will be connected with other conferences happening at the same time.  I have been invited to give a paper (initial thoughts are to explore something relating to the nature of 'Secular Hermeneutics' with special reference to Barth and Bonhoeffer, but we shall see.)

Anyway, here are the details:
