Tradition Conference!

I’m doing an intensive unit in the winter break, and I’m flippin’ excited!! The University of Notre Dame is hosting a conference on Tradition in the first week of July. You can check out the program here.

Why you should come:
  • It’s going to be awesome.
  • Matthew Levering will be there. (Author of Holy People, Holy Land, and Sacrifice and Community, and many more. This is exciting because I have referenced him in essays!) But actually there will be a whole bunch of great international and local speakers, including Bishop Anthony Fisher, and some of our very own Notre Dame lecturers!
  • It’s at Notre Dame Sydney, the best Catholic University in Australia.
  • The topics look awesome. (see the program above)
  • It’s just the kind of engagement with society that is the task of a Catholic University I’ve talked about before. Catholic Voices puts it thusly:

    represents a unique opportunity to engage on Australian soil with what it means to be a member of the Roman Catholic Church, to consider how religious and secular traditions interact and to explore the notion of tradition generally. It is also a perfect opportunity to witness a Catholic University at its finest, discussing ideas of ongoing importance at the intersection of human communities and divine truths. A truly public event, this conference will be of benefit to anybody interested in the ongoing dialogue between the Church’s eternal teachings and the powerful influence of cultural norms.
  • This song: 
So get on it, and register, for the whole thing, a day, or even just for the debate (broadcast on national radio!)

    Theology! cuz you can do it as a church history unit, and I don't want to end up doing the history of the Church in Australia or something.

  3. boo! you should've done it as a philosophy unit !

  4. Monica says:

    Maybe so, but my philosophy essaying isn't so great yet (I've only done two philosophy subjects so far), so I'll get better marks if I do it as a theology unit. 😉

  5. […] and this applies not only to morality. As Bishop Anthony Fisher put it at Notre Dame’s Tradition Conference last year, we should be discerning about which traditions we choose to […]
