Von Hügel Institute

for Critical Catholic Inquiry
 

Having provided education and a focus for theological research for students, pastors and academics from around the world since 1962, Westfield House is hosting a workshop to celebrate its 60th Anniversary on Saturday 7 May 2022.

The background and intellectual context to the workshop is the work of the late Bernard Stiegler who, in the largest part of his intellectual career, thematized the problems of technology, knowledge, education, and care, especially in his in book, Taking Care of Youth and the Generations (2010). Participants will reflect theologically and philosophically on the problems of technology and how they relate to education and the formation of attention.

Embracing contemporary theology in its all-Orthodox intricacy, Catholic wide-ranging depth and evangelical transformative intensity, the aim of this workshop is to provide some thought-provoking questions and possibly answers, alternative approaches and unexpected solutions to the challenges presented by the modern use of technology. 

The workshop is free to attend but registration is needed. There will also be a possibility of joining via Zoom.

To register and for further details please contact  principal@westfield.cam.ac.uk
