Keynote: Engaging the secular mind

By Julian Rivers 02 Jun 2014

In his plenary lecture, Prof Julian Rivers examines the idea of a secular university. The vast majority of British academics work in institutions which are, or which they assume to be, 'secular'.

Sometimes that assumption is expressed in ways hostile to Christian contributions to the scholarly enterprise.

This lecture explores how the concept of a secular university is best formulated, the extent to which Christians can support such an ideal, and some ways that believers might develop a distinctive voice in such a context.
