Evangelical Women in Academia: Persuasion

When: 6 - 7 August

Speakers: Lucy Peppiatt, Justine Toh, Brooke Prentis

Join us at the 2021 Evangelical Women in Academia Conference as we reflect on the theme of Persuasion: how God persuades us, persuasive trends in our world, and how we persuade others. We welcome women scholars, students, and professional and ministry practitioners to join us in person at Ridley College, or online.

The event will be fully online and will include presentations and discussions on persuasion through live performance and art. It will include keynote addresses from Lucy Peppiatt, Brooke Prentis, and Justine Toh, and panel conversations based on the elective papers.

Thirty elective papers from Australian and New Zealand women scholars in the evangelical tradition and selected panel conversations will be available for viewing online before the conference.
