Everyday Ethics: A Future for Moral Theology?

Thursday, 26th May 2016 at 10am - 4pm Friday, 27th May

Location: Christ Church Oxford

This event is in the past.

This conference will bring together moral theologians, moral philosophers and social anthropologists to explore ways in which the discipline of moral theology might benefit from collaborative attention to the moral, spiritual and secular practices of daily life. It will address these issues of "everyday ethics" in critical dialogue with Michael Banner's book, ETHICS OF EVERYDAY LIFE: MORAL THEOLOGY, SOCIAL ANTROPOLOGY, AND THE IMAGINATION OF THE HUMAN (OUP, 2014). The first session will consider the methodology and ethics of Banner's book, the last will reflect on the conference and the practice of moral theology more generally, while the intervening sessions will be devoted to testing Banner's approach by considering moral practices his book does not address: citizenship and mobilization, neighbour-love, technology, eating and food, learning and education, working and vocation, and borrowing and spending.
