Re-Imagining Morality on the Web
Tracey Lamont (Fordham University)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] Recent sociological studies suggest that many young people today lack a sense of socio-moralcommitment and responsibility. Drawing insight from C. Wright Mills’ The Sociological Imagination (1959), this research study asks: How do Catholic young adult websites contributeto the creation and performance of a storied identity that encourages the development of asociological imagination, towards a sense of shared moral responsibility among young adults inan increasingly pluralistic age? This study explores at how religious organizations are using newmedia to communicate moral content to young adults and critiques the websites’ conceptions ofyoung adult development and morality in light of Kegan’s (1982, 1994) constructivedevelopmentaltheory. Guided by Kegan’s theory, the study explores how the websites functionas a holding environment for young adult moral development by exploring how they provideconfirmation, challenge, and continuity.

Creative Communication: The Potential for Digital Creativity in Theological Education

Daniella Zsupan-Jerome (Loyola University New Orleans)

Colloquium. [Note] This paper considers digital creativity as artistic expression, and proposes its use for theological education in a ministerial formation setting. Creativity as an aspect of theological education honors the imago Dei within the learner, and the innate creative spark of the person that reveals his/her Creator. In a practical and pedagogical sense, creative work demonstrates appropriation: both understanding the content and the ability to re-propose it anew. After establishing these theological and pedagogical merits, the presentation offers concrete examples from graduate ministry students.
