From the Director, Peter M. Scott: Welcome to the Summer 2009 issue of the Institute’s newsletter, with its reports on LTI’s activities over the last year. It has been another frenetic year at the Institute, with some projects coming to a conclusion and new projects beginning. Elsewhere in this newsletter, you will find reports on the three LTI projects that are currently underway: the first phase of the Future Ethics has been completed and the second phase is now beginning. A new project, Belonging & Heimat, led by the Institute’s new honorary research fellow John Rodwell, has begun. And the head of steam in the third project, Divinity after Empire, continues to build as the project attracts additional partners. A number of publications by members of the Institute have also appeared; please click here to download the rest of the newsletter.
