"Congratulations on reaching the Society for the Study of Theology's website. Our next annual conference, on Speech and Silence, will take place at the University of Durham from 7 to 9 April 2014. Speakers will include Robert Beckford, Gerard Loughlin, George Pattison, Susannah Ticciati and Randall Zachman. The conference is designed for anyone with graduate-level interest in theology.
Questions we shall be addressing will include: How is the Word spoken? What place does silence have in theological narrative? How should the Church speak to the world? Are there theological truths beyond articulation? What should the theologian say about unjustified silencings in church and society? How do speech and silence interact in prayer, liturgy and reconciliation?
The call for papers will be made at the beginning of December and bookings will open at the beginning of January.
We look forward to welcoming you personally to this conference." George Newlands, President
