George Whitefield at 300 Conference
Today has been released the Call for Papers for a conference that I'm organising on the eighteenth-century evangelical revivalist George Whitefield. 2014 will mark the tercentenary of his birth, an ideal opportunity for reassessment of his life and legacy.
Organised in partnership with the Manchester Wesley Research Centre, the Oxford Centre for Methodist Studies and the Jonathan Edwards Center at Yale, the conference will be held at Pembroke College, Oxford, on 25-27 June 2014.
Keynote speakers at the gathering will include Mark Noll (Notre Dame, US), Carla Gardina Pestana (UCLA), Bill Gibson (Oxford Brookes), Boyd Schlenther and myself (Aberystwyth).
Anybody interested in attending, or in offering a paper can find full details here: Whitefield Call for Papers.
