'Constructing a 'Post-Secular' Public Theology'
A lecture by Professor Elaine Graham, University of Chester. This lecture is part of the seminar series in Faith and Globalisation.
Professor Elaine Graham joined the University of Chester as Grosvenor Research Professor of Practical Theology in November 2009. She is also the project leader for the University's professional doctorate in Practical Theology, which offers students from a wide range of occupational and professional contexts the chance to develop their own practice-based theological research projects.
As a practical theologian, Professor Graham sees herself as working at the interface of theology and practice - or the relationship between people's beliefs and values, and their actions. She is currently working on issues of public theology: whether in what might be termed a 'post-Christian, post-secular society', religion has any continuing role in public life. She has recently helped to organise a series of seminars on "Faith, Secularism and Public Policy' which drew together researchers and practitioners to debate what legitimacy religion can be granted in areas such as education, law, welfare policy and economics.
