Conference on Ethics, Religion & Philosophy 2018. Submit your

Conference Theme:
"Surviving and Thriving in Times of Change"

The way we think, reason and behave as individuals, as communities
and societies is in a process of constant change and renegotiation.
The only constant of change is change itself, as Heraclitus most
famously put it some 2,500 years ago. Change may not be new, but its
pace, assisted and facilitated by advanced technologies, means these
processes have never been faster. While in some ways we have grown
together through the processes of globalisation, in others we have
become more isolated, marginalised and alienated. Religious
traditions, and the relationship between religion and civil society,
have also faced dramatic change.

This conference's theme of "surviving and thriving" in these times of
change invites us to continue to consider this large question through
the traditions and lenses of studies associated with religion,
philosophy and ethical studies.

The role of religion is seen by many as having no place in the modern
world. Where and when it does wield influence it is often viewed as
inappropriate or malevolent, and as a barrier to "progress" and
"modern" thinking. In today's fast-paced and technology driven world
are the study of philosophy and ethics useful, or are they similarly
becoming irrelevant and ossified? What is the continued role and
relevance of ethics, religion and philosophy, as subjects to be
studied, discussed and lived as core parts of our individual and
collective lives? How can they help us stay resilient in the face of
challenges and failures? How can they help us overcome the various
difficulties that life brings?

In conjunction with our Global Partners, including the University of
Sussex and Birkbeck, University of London, we look forward to
extending you a warm welcome in 2018.
