Conference 2016

September 2016

To and from the Antipodes: Catholic missionaries over two centuries.

The Society will be holding a conference on Saturday 24 September 2016 at the North Sydney Campus of the Australian Catholic University, with a welcome reception on the evening of Friday 23 September from 6.00pm to 7.30pm at St John’s College within the grounds of the University of Sydney. The reception will include a tour of the chapel and a short talk on the history of the college. Conference participants are asked to indicate if they will attend the reception (for catering purposes).

The keynote speaker, Dr Ennio Mantovani, SVD is Lector Emeritus at the Yarra Theological Union and the author of a number of scholarly articles and books on missionary work. His presentation “Mission: from Bringing to Discovering the Light. A Personal Journey” is based on more than 30 years’ experience in Papua New Guinea.

Thanks to a generous donation there will be a prize of $500 for a meritorious paper by a current Higher Degree Research student.

All participants, including presenters, are required to register using the conference registration form accompanied by the conference fee. A receipt for payment will be mailed along with transport options and parking details. Registrations will be received up to Wed 31 August.
