Connection without Control: Theology and Interconnectedness in the University
Sullivan, John
Christian Higher Education, v6 n2 p143-159 Mar 2007
Three questions are addressed here. First, why should theologians promote inter-connectedness in the Christian university? Interconnectedness is here understood as the promotion of dialogue between subject areas. Second, why is the promotion of interconnectedness problematical? Third, how might we conceive of this being done, in particular with what kind of tone, style and intention? Theology cannot dictate without damaging either the educational process or the cooperative culture and community in the university. Thus I argue for theology to be a source of connection in the university, but without control.
