David will give an introduction to the impact of (post-)modernity on the academy and on the field of jurisprudence in particular, and show how a Christian worldview can open the door to a difference approach.

Tracks for Subject-Groups
After lunch, we will gather in one of two major subject groups: Arts & Humanities and Science.

  • Arts and Humanities Track:
    ‘The Secular Imagination: Insights from the 1930s’

These subject groups are an excellent opportunity to hear from academics who have sought to apply the Christian worldview to their discipline.
