Upcoming Conference: Theology After Blackfriars: Oxford Dominicans in the 20th Century

A two-day conference discussing the intellectual contributions of the Oxford Dominicans in the last century, “Theology After Blackfriars: Oxford Dominicans in the 20th Century,” will be held June 25-26th, 2024 at Blackfriars, Oxford.

Conference Description: The social upheavals and intellectual revolutions of the 20th century have produced continued pressure on theologians to reimagine the shape of theological discourse. One community that has modelled how to ‘go on’ practicing theology in light of these developments is the English Dominicans at Blackfriars. Established in Oxford in 1221, this community has contributed profound theological insights and novel approaches to received doctrine over the last century, often generated through creative retrievals of Thomas Aquinas in dialogue with thinkers as diverse as Jung, Heidegger, Wittgenstein, and Marx. This two-day conference will historically situate and critically engage with the intellectual contributions of this community, evaluating their continued merits for the task of theology today.
