The greystone postgraduate Seminar series

The regular postgraduate seminar is a classical context in which specialist scholars present on their work and stimulate fresh insights, questions, and approaches among students and colleagues. Greystone is bringing this old world and traditional resource into a new context. The online Greystone Postgraduate Seminar Series opens this important world of cutting edge scholarship to the public, providing access to great ideas and rich discussion. Once a month for nine months per year, a leading scholar will speak for up to 1 hour on his or her research, drawing attention to important discoveries and alerting students to research methods and challenges, followed by up to 45 minutes of questions and discussion. The presentation will be recorded and published to Greystone Connect for the benefit of the Greystone Membership, but the discussion will not be recorded.

The inaugural 2019-2020 list of presentations offers an impressive range of subject matter and scholarly context, spanning historical periods and theological subjects. From justification at Regensburg to the relationship of the Torah to ancient law codes and collections, from the concept of blessedness to Gratian’s Decretum, this series is sure to prove the enduring value of the postgraduate seminar.

While the public is welcome to attend these online seminar events, current Greystone students, fellows, and students at partner institutions, have the first rights to the floor for questions and discussion, after which others may participate, time permitting.

See the Seminar Schedule below for the 2019-2020 list of seminar presentations.
