Difficult histories: Christian memory and past injustice

Wednesday 20th January 2021, 7.30pm

Online

Cambridge Papers Live: Recent years have witnessed heated debate over how Western nations remember their pasts. A generation of historical research on racial slavery and imperial expansion is now informing public memory. The turn to ‘difficult histories’ has provoked a reaction and calls for the reassertion of ‘patriotic history’.

At this event, we will survey the controversy and ask how Christians should respond. We'll be joined by historian and Cambridge Paper author, Professor John Coffey.

Birds have nests: Biblical reflections on the housing crisis

Tuesday 23rd March 2021,12.30pm

Online event

Cambridge Papers Live: UK housing prices have risen faster than wages since the mid-1990s, leading to a reduced ability of young people to live in secure homes, and a housing affordability crisis. The dominant supply and demand model misdiagnoses the causes of the crisis, and evades difficult questions. Biblical categories prompt a searching critique and can offer insights economics alone cannot provide. By emphasising the concepts of ‘stewardship’ and ‘home’, there are opportunities for Christians to make a significant contribution in addressing the housing crisis.

We'll be joined by Cambridge Paper author, David Corbett. You can read the Cambridge Paper that provides the basis for this talk on our website.
