Laidlaw College Call for papers – Conference on The Mediated Life 3-4 November

Our world has been described as one in which we are constantly “wrapped in media” and “colonised by technology”. Whether that is in relation to mass media, popular culture, the Internet and new media, teaching technologies, media artifacts, and the mediation of human relationships, we cannot avoid the impact that media and mediation have upon our individual and communal lives.  Laidlaw College are organizing a conference to discuss this.

Proposals comprising a 150 word abstract and 100 word bio should be sent to theology@laidlaw.ac.nz by 15 July 2016.

We will be publishing an edition of the journal Stimulus on the conference theme in 2017, and we would warmly invite conference presentations to be subsequently considered for that edition (www.laidlaw.ac.nz/stimulus).

A related series of workshops for church leaders applying these themes to issues of faith and life is planned to follow on Saturday 5 November, in partnership with Equippers College.

For general enquiries and proposal submissions please contact:
Christina Partridge (theology@laidlaw.ac.nz)
