Date / time
Date(s) - 14 May

The biannual Methodist Studies Seminars provide an opportunity for established and emerging scholars of Methodist Studies to present the findings of their research. We conceive of Methodist Studies broadly and aim to provide opportunities for students of history, theology, literature, art, material culture and other fields related to Methodism.

The next seminar will be hosted by Cliff College and the Manchester Wesley Research Centre on Friday 14 May 2021 from 10:00am to 4:00pm UK time online via Zoom.

The keynote paper will be the annual Fernley-Hartley Lecture given by Dr Anthony Reddie, with the title: ‘Racism and the Methodist Church: Going Beyond a Theology of Good Intentions’.

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. You can register here:
