ISS Seminars

Thursday 15 June, 2017 — Spirituality and Ageing

Population ageing is now a growing issue for politicians, and in our everyday lives. It is taxing the minds of policy-makers both in Australia and internationally. So what role does spirituality play in a long life? Professor Biggs will examine the different storylines available to us as we age, and the special value that a spiritual perspective brings to the mix. He will look at some of the alternative models of ageing arising from the major world religions and what evidence there is of the value of belief as we grow older. Finally he will look at the relationship between vulnerability as a common human experience, liminality as a sense of 'in-betweenness' and community as a way of prefiguring a world made new.

Professor Simon Biggs is Professor of Social Policy and Gerontology at the University of Melbourne and runs a research group on ageing at The Brotherhood of St Laurence. He has written widely on intergenerational relationships, identity and a long life, and policy responses to an ageing population. He came to Melbourne from Kings College London where he was Director of the Institute of Gerontology and has been on the World Economic Forum's special agenda council on ageing. His most recent book 'Negotiating Ageing: narratives for a long life' will be published by Routledge in 2017.

This seminar will be given in the Hughes room adjacent to St Peter's hall at 7.30 pm.

Thursday 20 July, 2017 — Enhancing Bible-Reading Through Images

A picture may be worth 1000 words, but how do artists go about visualizing the words of Scripture? Moving from the tentative, compressed, Early Christian symbols to the complex and vast cycles of late mediaeval and Renaissance art, we will explore the ways in which images can accompany, parallel, and dialogue with words in ways which can enrich our responses to the scriptural teaching.

Sophia Errey is an artist, art educator and writer. She has lectured widely in the visual arts both historical and contemporary, and previously developed and taught courses on Christian Iconography. She has also led study groups at her home church, St Peter's, Box Hill, on the Nativity and Passion cycles, Lenten saints and Jerusalem. Her most recent exhibition was THROUGH (Vocatus atque ni vocatus) at Langford 120 in 2016.
