Theological imaginaries and models of development (Registration available)

Theological imaginaries and models of development: A reflexive workshop

Campion Hall, Oxford
Wednesday, 7 June 2017, 1.30-5.30pm

 

A large proportion of development actors in Latin America are inspired by their Catholic faith and act through Catholic institutions.  At the same time, Latin America has been the site of plural Catholic theologies with explicit social and political implications.  This exploratory workshop aims to understand how distinct theological imaginaries shape models of social action (and vice versa).

 

Visiting Georgetown Artist Exhibits Work

During the past term, the Hall had the distinct pleasure of hosting Prof. John Morrell of Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

Prof. Morrell is a working artist specializing in watercolor landscapes; during his time in Oxford John worked on a number of on-site studies of the local environs in preparation for a larger exhibit in America in the coming months. The image (left) is one of those studies: A view of the Thames at Oxford, known as the Isis.
