Students selected to present at Stone-Campbell Journal ConferencePosted April 21, 2015
Students from the Graduate School of Theology presented at the annual Stone-Campbell Journal Conference April 9-11, 2015. The conference brings scholars and students from across the nation together and includes universities affiliated with the Stone-Campbell Movement and beyond. These include Abilene Christian, Texas Christian, Claremont, Lipscomb, and Vanderbilt as well as others. The three GST students traveling to present at the conference are Sarah Dannemiler, Kipp Swinney and Laura Estes.
Dannemiler is one of three finalists in the general graduate student paper competition discussing her work on the influence of right wing politics on Pepperdine University in the 1960s. Swinney was selected to present his paper on the use of the book of Job in Alexander Campbell’s “canon” in the “Issues in the Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement” study group. Estes won the Isaac Errett competition for the Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement in history studies with her paper on the first Stone-Campbell mission to Jerusalem and the theological rationale behind a shift of focus from the Jewish population to the Muslims. Appreciation goes to Dr. Doug Foster for mentoring and facilitating student research in the Stone-Campbell tradition.
