In 2009 CASE (Centre for Apologetic Scholarship and Education) at New College held a successful medical ethics conference, in which ‘Christian Perspective on Life & Death’ was discussed. We are pleased to say the 2010 CASE Medical Ethics Conference ‘Christian Perspectives on the End of Life’ is fast approaching! This will be a significant and helpful time of learning and thinking together about the important and difficult issues of medical ethics from a Christian perspective, particularly for students, health care professionals, and interested members of the general public. It will be held at New College, UNSW on 27 March. Don’t miss out if you’re planning to attend. Places are quickly filling up (nearing the 50% mark with still two and half weeks until registrations close on March 17), so make sure your register now to avoid disappointment. Last year the conference was oversubscribed and we had to close registrations a week before, so please REGISTER NOW.
Please consider helping us to promote the conference by forwarding this information to your networks, you can download the brochure (above) and poster available here.
In our CASE blog we seek to engage with issues and ideas that are relevant to contemporary life. We welcome your comments and feedback. Some of our recent blog posts are:
Our upcoming issue of Case Magazine #22 is on the theme “God without Borders”. Our hope for this edition is to bring a range of theological and other disciplinary approaches to bear on the problems of life and the overlapping of local, global, national, and international spheres. How do we make sense of the various layers of community, solidarity and ethical relationships created by the relations of these spheres? What new historical conditions has globalization brought about? We have a stellar list of articles and authors including: Stanley Hauerwas, Andrew Sloane, Matthew Tan, Luke Glanville, Erin Goheen, John Shellard, Stuart Barton Babbage and Andrew Errington.
