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?

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.

I joined the Institute from the University of Gloucestershire, where I taught constructive, systematic theology for 16 years. In both teaching and research, I am deeply committed to relating theological insights to the dilemmas and issues of modern life. My work thereby cuts across disciplinary boundaries and draws... click here to read more.
