Prof. Sven Sterken obtained a visiting fellowship to the University of Queensland from 31st July until 31st August 2018. During his stay in Brisbane he will study the archives of Archbishop James Duhig (1871-1965), known as ‘James the Builder’ since he raised finance for no less than 400 church buildings during his tenure. In particular, he will study this impressive building campaign in the light of the competition with other Christian denominations and how it shaped the current cityscape of Brisbane (see also link).
