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.
