I have been working with colleagues at the Australian Catholic University to plan and participate in a day conference on ‘Culture, Ethnicity, and Religion in Early Christianity and Early Judaism’, to be held at ACU on July 18th 2017.
David is giving a paper entitled “Ethnicity, Race, Religion: Categories of Analysis and Contexts of Interpretation in the Study of Judaism and Early Christianity” with a response from Professor Mark Brett of Whitley College.
I will be giving a paper entitled “Intra-Jewish Polemic in Paul and Qumran: A Comparative Investigation”, and Emmanuel Nathan from ACU will be responding.
There will also be four short papers in the afternoon from NT PhD students and scholars here in Melbourne. The poster is below with details of registration etc.
