Jolyon Mitchell will give his Inaugural Lecture as Professor of Communications, Arts and Religion at 2 pm this Thursday, 15 September, in the Assembly Hall, New College. The lecture is entitled “‘Swords into Ploughshares’: Transforming Arms into Art”, and it will reflect in part his major new research project on “Peacebuilding through Media Arts”.
Professor Mitchell is a distinguished theologian, ethicist and broadcaster, who has lectured widely around the world. He is the Director of the Centre for Theology and Public Issues. As a scholar-teacher at New College, he has drawn upon the arts in exploring issues of vital importance: sponsoring dramatic performances, developing a popular course in theology and film ethics, and organising the major art exhibition “Shadows of the Divine”.
Professor Dorothy Miell, Head of the College of Humanities and Social Science, will chair the Lecture, which will last about an hour. There will be a reception in the Rainy Hall immediately after the lecture.
