CANCELLED: Digital theology and the Church
Thanks to the transformative power of digital technology, we can now communicate faster, further and in closer connection with a truly global audience. We have new methods to tell our stories to anyone who will log on, listen, read or view.
Balanced with this, though, are the ways in which the digital world has the potential to increase divisions and distance between people like never before. Beyond this it also opens up new ideas and possibilities about what it means to be human, community and Church.
Join us as we spend a day exploring these ideas, going beyond simple talk of clicks, likes and views to dig deeper into what it means to a Christian believer in today’s digital era.
Prof Steve Furber – Keynote Talk
Andrew Graystone – Technological Overload
Rev. David Robertson – Social Media
Prof Maggi Savin-Baden – Postdigital Afterlife
Dr Cara Parrett (Oliver Barclay Lecture) – Challenges in Community Based Conservation
