Leeds Trinity Catholic Conference

Leeds Trinity Catholic Conference


Leeds Trinity Catholic Conference: Leadership, Faith, Spirituality and the Catholic Curriculum.

In today’s HE environment, the mission and purpose of the Catholic university can be difficult to define and to understand.  Many universities are attempting to reclaim their specific faith foundation and identity and make sense of it in a challenging, complex and competitive HE environment. The challenges can be great but the prospects and opportunities can be even greater. But the opportunities will only become visible if we take the time to discuss and to debate the relevance of the Catholic HEI as an environment where the development of graduates that are not only job-ready but who are suitably equipped to become the ethical leaders of the future – acting with integrity and virtue in relation to how they see the world, business, communities, politics and the global injustices that permeate every level of the contemporary world.  This conference will bring together academics, young people, Vice Chancellors and others to discuss how the Catholic HEI can be the vehicle through which the values-driven, ethical leaders of the future  can be found and supported – without excluding the role that can be played by faith and spirituality in that quest to create the leaders of the future.

The Conference will be held on 13th & 14th May 2023, booking options below:

Saturday all day £50 (including all sessions and refreshments, and an evening meal) 

Sunday all day £20 (including all sessions and refreshments) 

Whole Weekend Discounted rate of £60 (including all Saturday and Sunday sessions, and all catering)

This conference explores developments in society & personal consciousness in the long 19th Century & changing ideas of the Victorian Age

Keynote Speakers: Professor Helen Small (Oxford) and Professor Talia Schaffer (CUNY)

The Victorian age was characterised by social, technological, scientific, religious, and cultural transformation. As we have lived with the Victorians, our view of them has in turn transformed, with the concept of ‘transformation’ itself proving mutable. This conference will engage with the idea of transformation both as applied to the Victorians, and in Victorian Studies. Taking a thoroughly interdi

nsciplinary approach, the conference seeks to explore both the changes taking place in society and personal consciousness during the long nineteenth century, and the changing constructions and interpretations of the Victorian age.

Organized as a collaboration between the Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies (LCVS) and the Charlotte M. Yonge Fellowship (CMYF), the conference coincides with the bicentenary of the novelist Charlotte M. Yonge (1823–1901). It is intended that she will feature prominently in the discussions, as a writer whose exceptionally long literary career captured the many changes of the period, and whose reception history has been so suggestively varied. Once seen as a writer with ‘true realist chique’ (Henry James, 1865), she was later disparaged as old-fashioned and off-puttingly religious – even ‘fanatic’ (Q. D. Leavis, 1944) – before enjoying something of a renaissance in the twenty-first century. How and why have readings of her work changed, and how might a revisionary approach transform our view of ‘the Victorian’?
