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).


Forthcoming Events

Protestant Bible Scholarship: Antisemitism, Philosemitism, and Anti-Judaism

Sunday 26 and Monday 27 May, Harris Lecture Theatre, Oriel College

Conveners: Hindy Najman (Oriel) and Arjen Bakker (Oriel)

This conference brings prominent biblical scholars and scholars of Judaism together for a conversation on the foundations of our fields. We want to generate a critical discussion about how a biased understanding of Judaism became an integral part of biblical scholarship through the twentieth century. This conversation is about understanding, healing and changing that discussion through critical thinking and ethical reading.
