Offa House conference: 13-15 April 2011

The next in our biennial series of residential conferences will be held at Offa House in Warwickshire starting at 4pm on Wednesday 13 April and finishing with lunch on Friday 15 April. Speakers will include Terry Barringer, Dominic Erdozain and John Wolffe, and there will also be a panel session and extended discussion around the practical vocation and experience of Christian historians.

As in previous years, we warmly welcome and encourage offers of short papers (which may be of an informal ‘work in progress’ kind), lasting up to 20 minutes. These can be on any historical topic: we greatly value contributions that offer a Christian perspective on ‘secular’ historical themes, as well as papers on church/religious history subjects. If you would like to offer a paper please contact John Wolffe ( by 31 January 2011.

Offa House is the Coventry diocese retreat and conference centre, located in a peaceful rural/village setting, but a short taxi ride from Leamington Spa, which has good rail connections to most parts of the country. The food and hospitality are excellent. The cost of the conference will be in the region of £100, with some concessions possible for students, and those presenting papers.
