|Description||The theme of the 2012 Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture is "Technology and Human Flourishing." Each year, the Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture addresses significant issues from the vantage point of Christian intellectual traditions. It thereby embodies Baylor University's aspiration to cultivate reflective engagement with the world of public ideas and issues, especially in a way that acknowledges the relevance of Christian questions, convictions, and contributions. Featuring leading national and international scholars -- and including a wide range of participants from varied denominational, private, and public universities -- the symposium is convened annually by Baylor's Institute for Faith and Learning.
Confirmed speakers include: Patrick Deneen, Associate Professor of Political Science and College Chair, University of Notre Dame; Ian H. Hutchinson, Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Peter Kilpatrick, Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Dean of the College of Engineering, University of Notre Dame; Nancey Murphy, Professor of Christian Philosophy, Fuller Theological Seminary; Rosalind Picard, Professor of Media Arts and Sciences and Director, Affective Computing Research Group, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and R.R. Reno, editor-in-chief of First Things; Professor of Theological Ethics, Creighton University.
