Programme ECIC 18, June 4-7 2013

The theme of the conference was Tradition and innovation: the tensions of a maturing Internet. The conference  presented an opportunity to consider whether the Internet is, in fact, like ECIC, coming of age and how experiences of being religious and human are enriched or challenged by experience of the virtual.
