“Challenges for Religious Freedom in the digital age”
Sun 24 to Weds 27 August 2014
University of Birmingham,
Our Congress will consider how the last quarter-century’s paradigm-shifting leap in communicative power has shaped the encounter of beliefs, and might inform the ways in which it continues.
Contributors will address the advantages that have accrued for the struggle for freedom of belief, as well as the challenges that have arisen for it, from the output of the digital technologies that have revolutionized communication, relationships and identity in recent decades.
