ENGAGE LUNCH: To write or not to write? Public Christianity and ‘tone’
Speaker: Natasha Moore (Research Fellow, Centre for Public Christianity)
Date/time: Monday 17 July, 12.30 – 2pm
PLACE: Anglican deaconess ministries, Level 1, St Andrew's House, 464-480 Kent St, Sydney
Join us on Monday, 17 July for a roundtable lunch with our guest speaker, Dr Natasha Moore. Natasha is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Public Christianity (CPX). She studied languages at the University of Sydney, then completed a PhD in English Literature at the University of Cambridge. She is the author of ‘Victorian Poetry and Modern Life: The Unpoetical Age’, and editor of ‘10 Tips for Atheists ... and other conversations in faith and culture’. She has worked at CPX for 3 years and has written for the mainstream media on topics that include books, movies, politics, food, domestic violence, Scripture in schools, war, Thanksgiving, and freedom of speech.
At this Engage lunch, Natasha will talk about how to choose our battles when speaking into a polarised public square. She’ll help us think about ‘tone’ – how we come across to others and what to consider when weighing in on public debate. Participants are encouraged to bring some ideas about how their own work and expertise might feed into the public conversation, and we will spend some time talking informally about some of those ideas.
A catered lunch is provided. This Engage Lunch will be held at ADM’s Sydney offices. Limited spots, RSVP essential.
