The Department of Fundamental and Dogmatic Theology is organising eight research seminars, each session focusing on a particular theme within the area of Systematic Theology.
Seminars shall be held on a monthly basis. Students reading for a taught or research postgraduate programme of studies (MA students), as well as academic staff members, are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions.
During the seminars papers shall be read on a research project undertaken by an invited speaker (mainly postgraduate or doctoral candidates, as well as visiting scholars or staff members), followed by questions and discussion.
Research seminars are considered as an important part of postgraduate training and a key context for fostering academic scholarship, offering opportunities to learn about new developments in the field, engage in dialogue with guest speakers, and expand knowledge and skills through group discussion.
The first in the series of these seminars will be held on Wednesday 18 January at 16:00 at the Faculty of Theology Boardroom (Room 317). The seminar, entitled 'Two lungs of the Church of Christ: Ecumenism as one Breath', will be delivered by Dorianne Buttigieg (Ph.D. candidate).
The second seminar, which will be held on 15 February, will be delivered by Claudette Schembri (M.A. in Religious Studies) who will talk about 'The eco-theology of Pope Benedict XVI'.
