What does it mean to exist in complex relationships with machines? What insights can be offered to our understandings of these relationships by the theologically significant theme of ‘love’? What critical assessments can be made of our multiple uses of technologies in shaping our futures, by reflecting on our pasts?

Disquiet over the prevalence of social and economic individualism has a long history. In a world of mobile Capital and increasingly mobile people, communities of common tradition and locality appear to be under threat from the advent of a fragmented market society. Are these complaints against individualism justified? And crucially, how should Christians respond to them? Digging down into the substance of these questions, this project will consider the theological, liturgical and scriptural resources Christians have for understanding the notion of individualism in relation to issues of education, public life and the formation of democratic citizenship.

Manchester Religion and Civil Society Network

The Religion and Civil Society Network (formerly Manchester Research Institute for Religion and Civil Society) brings together the established expertise of two existing research groupings exploring different aspects of the relation between religion and the public sphere. They are the Lincoln Theological Institute and the Centre for Religion and Political Culture. The RCSN began in 2006 and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams gave an inaugural public lecture Faith, Freedom, Secularity to mark the occasion. A streaming video of the entire speech can be downloaded by clicking here. As well, Professor Graham Ward was interviewed by BBC Manchester radio to discuss religion and civil society. Click here to listen to an mp3 or you can also subscribe to our podcast on iTunes. (Kind permission of the Terry Christian Show, BBC Radio Manchester).
