Workshops and Conferences

CBH workshops are constructed as broad interdisciplinary events that stimulate research and strengthen relationships among scholars and postgraduates from various institutions within Oxford, across the UK, and around the world.

These workshops keep Oriel College and the University of Oxford at the heart of cutting-edge international research in biblical studies. Upcoming CBH workshops include Lament, Reading, and Therapy (5 November 2018); Ethical Reading: Exemplarity (11–12 March 2019); and Protestant Bible Scholarship: Antisemitism, Philosemitism, and Anti-Judaism (27 May 2019).
