The next International  Day Conference in Biblical Studies will take place on 9 November 2011 when we welcome not one, not two, but three international scholars on the Dead Sea Scrolls  to the School. All three will brave the long and arduous journey all the way from Oxford to be here. The Research Day Conference will also include papers by PTR Research Students and will be followed by a special Birmingham Edition of Dead Sea Scrolls Question Time open to the public.
