The Baptist Scholars International Roundtable
Formerly known as Young Scholars in the Baptist Academy, the BSIR promotes scholarship from Baptist perspectives across the ages and around the globe by facilitating a scholarly forum for exchange of ideas. This community is international, intergenerational, interdisciplinary, and invites a diversity of Baptist affiliations. At the heart of the Roundtable is formation for academic stewardship in which a newer generation is welcomed into an international Baptist Academy and formed to preserve and sustain both academic and faith communities. At annual meetings, hosted at Regents Park College, Oxford England, senior scholars (BSIR Fellows) and a Visiting Fellow engage with the developing ideas of doctoral students, early –career and mid-career faculty (BSIR Scholars) presenting papers selected through a competitive process.
