Wesleyan Studies Summer Seminar
Asbury Theological Seminary and Asbury University announce their 4th Wesleyan Studies Summer Seminar to be held June 2015. This seminar has been established to develop and support research, writing, and publication in the broad field of Wesleyan studies. The seminar promotes the work of serious researchers by:
- Making scholarly resources of Asbury Seminary and Asbury University available to participants.
- Fostering dialog between researchers and the faculty of Asbury Seminary and University who have expertise in the researcher’s field.
- Creating an environment for conversation, study, and networking among scholars in the field of Wesleyan studies.
The Wesleyan Studies Summer Seminar is designed for those who are working on articles, dissertations, and book length manuscripts in the field of Wesleyan studies with an eye to publication. The Wesleyan Studies Summer Seminar will take place from June 1 through June 25, 2015 with sessions being held on Monday and Thursday afternoons.
Meet with Asbury Experts
The seminar provides opportunities for rich conversation with a wide spectrum of faculty members including Kenneth J. Collins (Director), Neil Anderson, Kenneth Kinghorn, Steven O’Malley, Michael Pasquarello, David Rightmire, Robert Stamps, Robert Tuttle, and Laurence Wood.
No Tuition Charges
Seminar sessions are held twice a week throughout the month of June. These sessions are important focal points of dialog and learning in which issues of common concern are addressed. Participants have access with full privileges not only to the B.L. Fisher and Kinlaw libraries (including significant electronic databases) but also to their special collection holdings in Wesleyan and Methodist studies.
Participants are expected to engage fully in the opportunities provided by the seminar; priority is therefore given to applicants who plan to attend the entire seminar. Exceptions can be made in special cases.
Scholarships Available for International Airfare
Asbury Seminary offers scholarships to help cover the airfare of international researchers and a meal will be provided for everyone on the evening of each seminar at no cost.
Applications must be received by January 19, 2015. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by March 16, 2015. This seminar is limited to ten persons. Application includes: application form, a full vitae, a description of the current research project as well as a projected plan for publication.
