The Theology Research Network (TRN), a network within the discipline area of Theology, was initiated in 2020 under the leadership of Professor Neil Ormerod. It exists to promote theological research within the Sydney College of Divinity. It draws together scholars from the diverse theological disciplines (systematics/doctrine, patristic, biblical theology, ethics, liturgy) within the SCD, and provides them with a forum and focus for theological research.
The TRN does not have a specific thematic focus but chooses topics of interest for study over a two-year timeframe. All members of the TRN will be invited to contribute from their own distinct perspective to the topic under consideration. While all faculty members within the SCD Theology discipline are specifically invited to participate in the TRN, that same invitation will be extended to all SCD faculty member who might be interested in the chosen topic.
At this stage there is no formal membership for the TRN. As a network it remains an informal and inclusive structure that welcomes diverse participation in our conversations from a variety of perspectives.
