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.

"PATRIOTISM?" CONFERENCE, 19TH MAY 2012, MANCHESTER

 

In the second of its conferences on civil society, the Lincoln Theological Institute is pleased to announce the conference, “Patriotism?”.

How might national loyalty, identity and cohesion be understood in a religiously plural and culturally differentiated ‘nation’? The conference aims to achieve greater clarity over whether or not the revivification of Patriotism is warranted, and in what ways a revitalised Patriotism may differ from past Patriotisms.  The present state of Britain’s relationship with the European Union, a proposed referendum on Scottish Independence, and the celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June 2012 make Patriotism a highly relevant topic.

Full details about the conference, including how to register, may be found at the conference’s webpage.
