The Colloquium for Ageing Perspectives and Spirituality (previously the Centre for Ageing and Pastoral Studies) at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture at Charles Sturt University is pleased to invite you to this conference.
The theme of the conference is ‘Changing Cultures of Ageing and Spirituality’ and will address changing cultures (defined in its broadest sense) in the 21st century, specific issues of later life, work with older people and theological and ethical issues. We have invited international and local speakers to address this theme with pre-conference workshops and 3 days of conference. The inaugural spirituality and ageing conference was held in the National Capital in January 2000 and convened by Professor Elizabeth Mackinlay. Now in its 8th iteration, the national and international profile of the conference has grown significantly. It attracts people from across the globe who are at the forefront of ageing and spirituality; an area that has only recently begun to be recognised as vital to the well-being and care of older people. Keynote speakers include:
- Rev Professor Elizabeth Mackinlay
- Professor John Swinton
- Dr Lydia K. Manning
- Dr Richard Egan
- Professor Kalyani Mehta
