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.

BETWEEN THEOLOGY AND THE POLITICAL (26-28 MARCH 2015)

By bringing together a variety of voices from a range of disciplines, ‘Between Theology and The Political’ is a three day conference which will explore key themes of theo-politics. Over the course of three days, theo-political theory will be considered in the context of its relationship to praxis. In the last thirty years civil society has assumed a significant place in political rhetoric, theory, and practice. Therefore, this three-day conference will examine civil society through three theological lenses; the work of Hegel (Day 1), theological reflections on exclusion (Day 2) and the engagement between faith and social activism (Day 3).
