Dawson Centre Colloquium, 29 June, 2019

‘Rebuilding the Walls of Sion’

On Saturday 29 June 2019 the Christopher Dawson Centre for Cultural Studies will host its fifth annual colloquium in Hobart, Tasmania.   The Dawson Colloquium is a conversation, not a multi-stream conference.  There are no keynote speeches, as all are considered important to the flow of ideas; speakers are encouraged to attend all papers.  The colloquium will conclude with a panel discussion.

The following papers have been confirmed:

Peter Cunich

Praying for the Dead: The Role of intercessory Prayer in the Construction and Maintenance of Christian Communities

Philippa Martyr

‘Your Healing Shall Spring Up’: psychological and spiritual interventions for rebuilding a wounded Church

Graham McDonald

Christianity and Jesus – an Inconvenient Truth

Karl Schmude

The Qualities of Christian Civilisation: The Transcendence of Goodness, Truth and Beauty

Wanda Skowronska

Successful Orwellian manoeuvres in Confusing Times:   Titania McGrath , Paul Vitz , Jordan Peterson, et al.

The colloquium will conclude with a panel discussion and a closing dinner in the evening.
