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?

LTI Newsletter Spring 2010

Welcome to the Spring 2010 issue of the Institute’s newsletter. Much has happened at the Institute since the last newsletter was published in summer 2009. As I write, advanced preparations are underway to host the second, international, colloquium of the Belonging & Heimat project at the University of Manchester in May and a rough cut of the LTI climate change film, ‘Beyond the Tipping Point?” is being produced.

A number of publications by members of the Institute have also appeared; please see inside for more details.I hope the activities presented here catch your interest. Click here to read more...
