2015 Dearing Memorial Lecture

The Revd Canon Professor Richard A Burridge, Dean of King's College London, will deliver The Cathedrals Group 2015 Dearing Memorial Lecture in London at 6pm on Thursday 12 November. Entitled 'Church foundation, pluralist present, uncertain future? The role and calling of faith-based institutions in Higher Education today', the lecture will pose a range of questions for CG institutions, including what contribution Christian foundations might make in terms of international relations and global politics in the light of growing recognition of the importance of religion in understanding our world in the Twenty-First Century. 

 

The Revd Canon Professor Richard A Burridge has been Dean of King's College London since 1993. He has written on ethics, the purposes of universities and higher education. He is presently working on a methodology to illustrate approaches to ethical dilemmas and common human experiences. He was one of two recipients of the 2013 Ratzinger Prize for Theology.
