Over two days in mid-January, three members of the Hall community travelled to Munich, Germany, to participate in a conference of systematic theologians from the University of Oxford and the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität (LMU). Participants were postgraduates and junior researchers from both universities, and the gathering was presided over by Professor Dr Jörg Lauster (Institute for Systematic Theology at LMU) and Professor Wener Jeanrod (Master of St Benet's Hall, OXford).
The Campion contingent included Rev Gerard Ryan SJ, working on a DPhil on the role of religion in recognition theory; Mr Travis LaCouter, working on a DPhil on the metaphysics of Hans Urs von Balthasar; and Mr Nandan Mani Ratnam, a visitor to the Hall from Christ Church, finishing his DPhil on Immanuel Kant's conception of human dignity. All three presented papers at the conference and faced lively Q&A sessions with the group.
