Drawing on Helen’s research, this ‘lecture & latte’ conversation will explore the role and impact of values in and on youth work and youth workers; and consider whether and how we might realise a critically reflective and emancipatory youth work practice in the midst of current challenges.

In the current, rapidly changing social and policy context, if we want to work for young people’s benefit it is vital that youth workers are able to recognise the agendas that shape the work we are being asked to perform.

As a ‘values-based’ practice, values – our own, youth work’s, our organisations’ and society’s – play a central, albeit sometimes covert and unexamined, role in shaping this work.

The fourteen century relationship between the Christian and Muslim communities is a long and complex one, with many different dimensions.
The first two decades of the twenty-first century have now seen a number of significant developments in Christian-Muslim Relations around the world, whether in the strictly theological sense or in the broader cultural and political senses.

Some of these are more positive (e.g. the ‘Dialogue of Civilizations’ initiative, the ‘Building Bridges’ seminars, the establishment of the Indonesian Consortium for Religious Studies, or the setting up of the United Nations Inter-Faith Harmony Week), while others are more negative (e.g. the events of 11th September 2001, the Danish Cartoons controversy, Pope Benedict’s Regensburg Lecture, or the assassination of Sahbhaz Bhatti).

This lecture will assess the current state of the relationship between the two communities, and suggest whether there is cause for optimism or for pessimism with regard to its future.

Having personal information collected and analysed is part of everyday life – for everyone, not only a suspect few.

Surveillance makes possible government, retail, healthcare, education in fact almost all dimensions of society. This lecture discusses how Christians might respond using the Bible and theological insights.

 

Dr Eric Stoddart

Lecturer in Practical Theology University of St Andrews

Dr Stoddart’s main research interests lie in surveillance and in digital technologies more generally – all from a practical theological perspective. He is curious about the faith which our societies place in technologies as supposed solutions to relationship challenges across a whole host of levels and in a multitude of contexts.
