Offa House Residential Conference, 13-15 April 2011: Feedback
I thought that the Conference was one of the best I have attended, and kept very much alive by the wide-ranging variety of the papers given. From the Hanoverian Parish, and its neo-Aminianism, to Stalin’s persecution of the Kulaks (via African independence issues and a journalist’s murder in the Greece of the 1870s), was quite a tour de force. Neither was research into the modern issues of to-day’s neo-atheism missing. Keep it going, please!
This was my first residential conference with CHF and I greatly appreciated it and the opportunity to meet up with old friends and make new ones. Refreshment to the spirit and stimulation to the mind. But my "to read" list is now even longer than ever.
An excellent conference - high quality papers, friendly company, comfortable venue.
The Offa House conference this year was splendid! It was my first visit and I found it thrilling to meet scholars who were thoroughly informed and engaged in the ethical, political and social challenges of our day. It was also encouraging that they are practicing Christians.

It was great to have four women among the speakers (may that encourage even more female participation in future!); be inspired by colleagues' innovative research; and refresh our sense of vocation.
