Updates from the Conference Circuit

It’s that time of year: summer conferences! Since May, I’ve presented at four conferences. The first two focused on law and religion, the second two on virtue in business and in general. I am now preparing for three more conferences, which will round out not just the summer but the 2021/22 academic year as well.

I’m grateful to all the conference organisers and to the Faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Oxford, the Oxford Character Project, the Institute for Humane Studies, and the Fondazione per le scienze religiose for their support.

Their investments, I hope, have been worthwhile: keep an eye out for several publications originating from these presentations, including (perhaps surprisingly) an invited chapter for an edited collection on technology and theological ethics.

Below I’ve provided titles for my conference papers. I’m happy to share drafts, notes, etc upon request.
