Winner of Ethics Award

Congratulations to Dr Stephen Garner, Laidlaw College’s Academic Dean, who won the 2018 Christians Ethics Award together with Dr Heidi Campbell (Texas A&M University). 

The award from the Carl Couch Center for Social and Internet Research (www.cccsir.com) was for their published work, Networked Theology: Negotiating Faith in Digital Culture. The Clifford G. Christians Ethics Award recognised that their book analysing how users consume media and technologies, and the impact that has on social and religious lives, addressed important theoretical issues in the areas of ethics, mass communication theory, and the relationship between media and technology and culture. The award is recognised on a plaque placed in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
