The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy Lecture Series: Community and Technology
Technological advances have linked us to one another and enabled nonstop global communication in ways that were impossible to imagine just a few decades ago. Through the devices we carry with us at all times, our ability to connect and to form digital identities and communities seems limitless. This technology brings with it great potential for engagement, cooperation, and enrichment, but paradoxically, it also leads to detachment, disrespect, and inauthenticity. The effects of this continuous, largely anonymous connectivity have profound theological and philosophical implications: What does it mean to create community and identity in this current context? How do we sustain personal and communal integrity? What new moral and ethical obligations and risks do we face? Join the Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy as we explore these and other questions with leading thinkers.
Ilia will speak April 16 at 7pm in the Fort Howard Theater, Bemis International Center at St Norbert College located at 100 Grant Street, De Pere, WI 54115.
All events are free and open to the public. Registration for these events is not required. You can find out more about the Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy here.
