David Parker, 2009 Kenneth W. Clark Lecturer at Duke

Mark Goodacre reports that his former colleague Dr. David Parker (Edward Cadbury Professor of Theology and Director of the Institute for Textual Scholarship, University of Birmingham) will deliver the 2009 Kenneth Clark Lectures at Duke.

The theme is Textual Scholarship and New Testament Studies including two lectures "New Testament Textual Scholarship Today" (Feb. 10) and "Using Textual Research" (Feb. 11). These are free public lectures held at Westbrook 0016.

Audio files from last year's lectures by Dale Allison are available on-line here. Hopefully, Parker's lectures will also be made available so that those of us who cannot make it to Duke can enjoy them too.

BTW, this reminds me of Goodacre's background in Birmingham. I remember once, when I visited Birmingham in 2006, a year after he had moved to Duke, his picture was still up on the faculty list in the entrance hall of the theological faculty! Apparently, it was a hard loss for Birmingham!
