The 2015 Annual Karl Barth Conference will take place June 21-24, 2015 at Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey. The theme of this year's conference is "Karl Barth & the Gospels: Interpreting Gospel Texts," and the plenary speakers include Richard Bauckham (University of St. Andrews, emeritus), Karlfried Fröhlich (Princeton Theological Seminary), Beverly Roberts Gaventa (Baylor University), Eric Gregory (Princeton University), Willie Jennings (Duke Divinity School), Paul Dafydd Jones (University of Virginia), Bruce L.

We especially encourage women, people of color, and international students to submit proposals.
