3 weeks of online discussion centred on

a 3-day intensive conference.

The conference fee is £50 per participant; concession for students £25 .

As part of the 'Reading the Bible in the Context of Islam' (RBCI) project led by Ida Glaser at the Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies, Oxford, a three-day conference will discuss papers around the theme of interpretation of the New Testament gospels in Islamic contexts. Selected papers will be edited for publication as a volume in the ‘Routledge Reading the Bible in Islamic Context’ series. 

Online engagement before and after the meeting will strengthen the ideas in each paper. All papers will be posted on the 'Forum' page at least a week before the conference, and conference participants will be invited to comment on them.   

We require presenters to send in their full paper by 17 August 2020. Authors will be expected to reflect on any online comments before their presentation and to bring these into discussion during our meeting times on 7-9 September. 

Online discussion will continue on selected papers after the conference, and authors will then be asked to produce their final drafts.
