The Mater Dei Institute of Education in Dublin, Ireland is holding an international interdisciplinary conference and graduate summer school from June 8th to 11th, entitled “A Secular Age”: Tracing the Contours of Religion and Belief:
The conference will explore the way in which theology and philosophy, when placed in dialogue with the social sciences, can reinvigorate public discourse. Suggested themes for papers include, but are not restricted to:
Assessment of Charles Taylor’s A Secular Age;
the relationship between religion, belief and modernity: a critical assessment;
the role of theology and philosophy in the public square;
the decline of the appeal to an objective moral order and the rise of the human rights culture;
moral sources and diverse contexts today.
