Professor Bill Chambers addresses European University Capital eventMonday 29 June 2015
Professor Bill Chambers, Pro Vice-Chancellor Emeritus, will give the opening address at a week-long event held in the former European Capital of Culture Sibiu, Romania.
Board members from the University Network of the European Capitals of Culture will hear from Professor Chambers as part of the Sibiu - European University Capital project.
The event aims to stimulate cultural excellence, highlight the European dimension of culture produced in Sibiu, and prove both the active international role of Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu (LBUS) and its involvement in local community issues.
A series of conferences, roundtables and theatre performances will take place from Monday 29th June until Friday 3rd July, alongside an international poetry festival and a choral concert.
The project will also feature a summer school organised by the LBUS Faculty of Theology and Department of Protestant Theology to discuss ‘Contemporary Theology in Global and Ecumenical Context’.
International guests will explore the practical problems faced by European Christian society, such as the role of Christian education in a global context, dialogues with other religions and the challenge of new medical technologies.
