Register Today for the Online ICS Summer Community Conference!


We are excited to announce some of the details about our upcoming ICS Summer Community Conference on June 8-11, 2022! The conference is free to attend and will take place online so our community can join us from anywhere in the world. The theme of this year's event is: “Difficult Conversations, Difficult Journeys, Difficult Justice.” 

We are hoping this will be a space for reflection, dialogue, and fellowship curated by the Centre for Philosophy, Religion, and Social Ethics. Through a combination of webinar sessions, workshops, and moderated conversations, this conference aims to generate constructive dialogue about some of the most pressing issues faced by our communities today. The conference’s ultimate goal is to offer participants the tools to think critically and dialogue constructively about issues such as polarization, colonization, systemic oppression, and Indigenous-settler relations. 

ICS Senior and Junior Members, alums, and our institutional partners Shalem Mental Health Network and Citizens for Public Justice will enrich this conference with their contributions, offering the audience a glimpse into their current teaching, research, and projects. ICS Senior Members Edith van der Boom, Rebekah Smick, Ronald A. Kuipers, and Nik Ansell are our confirmed keynote speakers. 

Most of the conference details have now been finalized. You can find a fuller description of the conference, a schedule outlining events, and a link to register on the conference webpage:
