Résumé

Following the success of the journée d’étude ‘Engaging with Engagement: French Catholic Thought 1930-50’, held at Magdalen College in May 2010, this conference will continue and extend exploration of different types of French Catholic intellectual engagement during the mid-twentieth century, against the backdrop of the ‘crises’ of civilization of the interwar period through to the war years and beyond. The formation of Catholic identities, in their artistic, philosophical, theological and political manifestations, and the shifting norms and values of political and social commitments in relation to their cultural and theological fault lines, are central to our concerns.
