The Justification – of Modern Art – By Faith
Dr Dan Siedell
This talk explores the impact of the Reformation understanding of sola fide in modern thought and creative practice, and especially on the history of modern art. Specifically, how 'faith' operates for modern artists and those with something at stake in modern art (critics, dealers, collectors), and the impact of the Reformation on cultural practices as a kind of 'secular faith'.

Transhumanism: Eternity in Their Hearts and a Chip in Their Shoulder
Florence Gildea
If the mortal coil were updated to fibre optic cable, would we have to shuffle off it? Welcome to Gnosticism 2.0, where the positively retro fear of mortality and disdain for physical bodies collides with techno-determinism. This talk explores the religiosity of transhumanism and explains why Jesus will probably not be ‘coming with the iCloud’.

Eros and Embodiment
Matthew Johnson
'Eros and Embodiment: what the cognitive scientific and philosophical work on metaphor teaches us about romantic love'. What is romantic love? And what distinguishes it from other forms of deep social relationship such as friendship? In this talk, we'll explore how some work from cognitive science and philosophy show us how metaphors may hold the answer, and even teach us how romantic relationships go right or wrong.

I'm Not Me: Shame and the Self with St. Paul
Dr Jonathan Linebaugh
Is there any good news for the suffering self? For Brené Brown, Houston based "vulnerability researcher" and TED Talk phenomenon, empathy--vulnerability meeting vulnerability--is the only antidote. But Bob Dylan finds something else to say: "Thank God, I'm not me." This is the route I'll take, both the "thank God" as this talk will draw on the resources of Christian theology and the "I'm not me" as I'll suggest that "I" am not the final answer to the question "Who am I?".
