Members agree to support the purposes of BSIR: 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 academic and faith communities of Baptists. At annual meetings in Oxford, England, senior scholars (BSIR Fellows) and a Visiting Distinguished Fellow engage with the developing ideas of doctoral students, early-career and mid-career faculty (BSIR Scholars). Seven papers are selected through a competitive process and Scholars and Fellows work together to present and often publish the work.
Please note: Membership does not guarantee participation in the Oxford meeting; however, members interested in attending as observers should contact co-director Dr. Laine Scales at
