As a network, CTEWC seeks to facilitate and promote debate among theological ethicists. This takes place via meetings, conferences and other forms of encounter. Here we offer a new format: virtual tables. In regular video conferences, ethicists from different regions of the world come together to discuss a topic. A virtual table works over a longer period of time (initially one year) in order to enable a serious and continuous discussion of the topic.
As a discussion forum, the virtual table is an end in itself. Nevertheless, the groups can decide whether they want to plan further joint projects (book project, workshop, etc.). In the First and on the CTEWC website, the virtual tables will provide quarterly information about their work.
The first round of the virtual tables started in December, 2019. Interested persons can apply to the organizers of the virtual table in which they are interested. We ask also that all virtual table co-leaders and participants register with the CTEWC network directory.
