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.

Katholische Akademie Berlin Internships

 

In coordination with the Centre for Religion and Political Culture, the Katholische Akademie Berlin generously offers to host one doctoral student for a month long research internship (usually in September, pending approval). The internship fosters participation within their summer research events as well as providing opportunities to work with the Akademie on conference events and other administrative duties. Accommodation in the heart of Berlin is provided along with some maintenance fees. For September 2009, Kyle Gingerich-Hiebert took up the internship, and the Religion and Modernity in the Secular City postgraduate conference is one of the outcomes.
