First Annual Australasian Conference
The first annual Australasian conference for the academy and the church will take place in Brisbane, Australia on the 30th of June to the 3rd of July 2009. The Annual Australasian Christian Conference (AACC) exists to stimulate research and publication by evangelical christian academics. The AACC has two Tracks. Track 1 provides biblical scholars with an opportunity to present research in the areas of biblical studies, systematic theology, ethics and church history. Track 2 provides a forum for academics working in the Humanities, Sciences and Engineering to explore issues at the intersection of Christianity and their specific discipline. To facilitate interaction with academics outside our geographical region the AACC has invited two scholars of international standing to deliver the plenary addresses in 2009: Richard Bauckham and David Baker. Brisbane (aka Brisvegas) is a great city and this looks like it will be a great conference. It is sponsored by the Queensland Theological College and the Australian College of Theology.
