“John Owen Today” Conference

The nine speakers are set for the John Owen Today conference, which will be held on 19–22 August 2008 at Westminster College in Cambridge.

Presentation titles are not yet available, but speakers are to limit their talks to 25 minutes to leave time for questions. Seems a bit short to me!

Here is the information about the conference from the flier:

An increasing number of scholars from a wide range of disciplines are finding the thought of John Owen to be a fertile field for study.

Nine of them will be presenting papers on his work at Westminster College, home to the original copy of the Westminster Confession.

There will also be opportunity for delegates to offer short papers.

Looks like it will be a solid event. I hope they make the audio and papers available. Additional (albeit very little) information is available at http://johnowentoday.blogspot.com/ or by email at johnowentoday-at-aol.com.

Update 1: Both the short paper and main paper titles are now available.

Update 2: Alan Spence, who is heading up the conference, left a comment noting that

the plenary speakers are not limited to twentfy five minutes. This is only for those giving short papers. There is an updated list of these on the John Owen Today website. The plenary papers have an hour and a half allotted to them, discussion included.
