The Centre for Advanced Research in Catholic Thought (CARCT)
The Centre for Advanced Research in Catholic Thought (CARCT) at King’s University College, Western University, London, Canada, has as its mission the promotion of critical research in constructive theology and related areas, including biblical studies, hermeneutics, and ethics. In particular, it honours and promotes the mutually enhancing dialogue between philosophy and theology.
The Centre seeks to create a space for the critical appropriation of the Catholic theological tradition and the exploration of creative responses to challenges in contemporary society and the global church.
Through lectures, study-days, conferences, and seminars, the Centre provides a forum for dialogue among
scholars from Canada and abroad. Offering a specifically theological contribution, the Centre highlights the commitment of King’s University College to the Catholic intellectual and educational tradition.
