Building on the reflections and papers from past years (see Communication Research Trends, volume 32, no. 3 for a sample), the 2014 conference will explore the theological questions of authority, presence, and community in the digital world. We invite theologians to reflect on these key questions in the light of the scriptural and theological tradition in ways that open up contemporary communication to ongoing theological reflection.
The conference will feature presentations by individuals of their current thinking and discussions among the participants on the major topics.
The organizing and sponsoring groups for the conference are the Pontifical Council for Social Communication, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Communication Office, and Santa Clara University.
