Integrative Studies

Excelsia College aims to provide excellence in higher education within a distinctive Christian framework. Every university and college works out of a particular worldview which integrates knowledge with action, and information with personal formation. Accordingly, all undergraduates at Excelsia study a suite of subjects called Integrative Studies, in which students are encouraged to assess critically their own worldview, and to engage thoughtfully with the Christian worldview that undergirds all teaching and learning at Excelsia.

The Integrative Studies curriculum addresses a range of topic areas:
Worldview seeks to clarify the way we conceptualise God, the world, the human person, and morality. It provides the student with intellectual and practical tools to assess critically whether a worldview is both intellectually coherent and practically useful, within our various social and political contexts.

Ethics draws upon the Western intellectual tradition, and the particular contributions of Christian thinkers, to help develop a workable framework for making moral decisions.

Biblical Studies enables students to read the central texts of Christianity, both Old and New Testament, in a way that is historically grounded and contextually aware. As a seminal text in the development of Western Culture, this course explores the relevance of the Christian Scriptures for both the believer and non-believer.

Vocation studies the way the Christian intellectual tradition speaks to the notion of “calling” in regards to the work we perform in this world. It encourages students to see their work as meaningful praxis, in which they are able to make a real and significant contribution to the world.

Lumen Conferral

Redeeming Truth and Community in the Age of Individualism 
The search for meaning, theological understanding, spiritual life, and the foundation of morality in the contemporary world

The 2018 Lumen conference examined the identity and marginalisation of the Christian voice today. The 2021 Conferral looks at what has been lost in pushing the Christian search for Truth and community to the margins (corroborated by Miroslav Volf’s book, Flourishing: Why We Need Religion in a Globalized World, Yale University Press, 2017), leaving declining liberal democracy, globalisation and free market economy at the core. Jonathan Sacks in his book, Morality (Hodder and Stoughton, 2020) claims that the levers of power (states and governments) and capitalism (wealth) have eclipsed and displaced the search for Truth, which, in the Judeo-Christian tradition, is the search for meaning, theological understanding, spiritual life, and the foundation of morality.

 

To this disintegration Sacks further attributes deterioration of families and marriages, the global growth in loneliness, depression and anxiety, drug addiction, and suicidality; the loss of social, communication and concentration skills; and an overall disintegration of society that arises from individualistic thinking of ‘I’ not ‘we’ ironically in pursuit of rights and freedom. ‘An individualistic universe may be free but it is fraught with loneliness, isolation, vulnerability and nihilism, a prevailing sense of the ultimate meaninglessness of life’ (Sacks, 2020, p. 85). Whilst the origins of individualism may stem from the Enlightenment, Sacks suggests that the current surge of individualism emerged with the ‘liberation’ of the 1960s, and abandonment of morals and religion, identified by Alasdair MacIntyre in his seminal moral theory study, After Virtue (University of Notre Dame Press, 1981), which is now epitomised by the iGen (or Generation Z, born after 1995, who have spent their entire life with smartphone technology).

 

What does Christian Truth and community have to offer society in the age of dangerous post-truth or ‘alternative facts’ (Lee McIntyre, MIT Press, 2018), unstable and inequitable liberal democracies, re-emerging totalitarian states, environmental irresponsibility, ‘social’ media that fosters isolation and insecurity, to people isolated and socially handicapped by technology, to a world that idolises wealth and power at the cost of equality, creating an ever-widening gap between affluence and poverty, a gulf between authoritarianism and justice? Is the search for Truth and spirituality truly obsolete? If not, how can we redeem the core values of Christian teaching and enrich society?

 

This year’s Conferral (towards a book of thematically aligned chapters) will build on the 2018 Lumen Conference and consequent book theme, Christian Identity in the Public Arena. That edition discussed Christian identity today and challenges to having a voice in the public sphere where Christians are marginalised and seen as ‘alien’. Alien and marginalised as Christianity may be, the 2021 Conferral asks what has Christianity to offer the dystopian spiritless future, and what must it retrieve in order for meaning and Truth to survive?

 

Jesus modelled radical and countercultural inclusiveness of marginalised and alienated people in his interactions, acknowledging the dignity and value of ethnic outsiders, the vulnerable, the physically and mentally ill, people with ritually unclean professions, women, people of all classes, and those generally ostracised by society. He did this nowhere more clearly than in the Lukan Gospel. In its sequel, Acts, the work of the early church focused on community creation and inclusiveness. How does Christianity today retrieve community cohesion and resilience, and support marginalised people from its own position of marginalisation?

ACHEA Conference

Changing Worlds: Purpose formation, pluralism and paradigm clash – past and present

 

In this conference we will discuss the nature, goals and processes of formation, challenges to formation in pluralistic contexts, and problems of formation at times of paradigm clashes. The legitimacy of individually focused formation through higher education is not immune to question, given the social inequalities evident in access to enrolment and between graduates and non-graduates. The ethical implications of intentional formation of people in a social context that privileges autonomy are also worthy of close scrutiny. Some ethical questions include: Who has the right to attempt the formation of others? What legitimates formation activities? What are the benefits and harms of purposive individual formation in situations of pluralism? In considering these and related questions about purposive formation we reflect on the present and consider lessons that can be learned from the past.

Insights from the 2018 Lumen Research Institute Conference at Excelsia College

Christian Identity in the Public Arena

The conference papers as a whole consider what it means to be Christian in contemporary Australia. It appears that the public-private division is becoming more fluid and at the same time the public face of Australia is becoming more secular. There are global pressures that promote identities based on consumption. On the other hand, the postmodern breakdown of grand narratives – whether religious, national, or historical – undermines narratives of the self. As a result, it is hard for individuals to articulate a personal identity. Further, religious people are grappling with what it means to live out their religious identity, as an aspect or core component of personal identity, in the context of a very secular, globalised public arena.

Two papers featured here explore the theme of Identity, Church and Culture that considers the nature of Christian identity in terms of contemporary culture and evangelical commitments. The author of the first paper, Mark Stephens, is Director of Integrative Research and Scholarship at Excelsia College. The authors of the second paper are Jim Blumenstock, Dean and Associate Professor of Philosophical Theology at Asia Biblical Theological Seminary, headquartered in Chiang Mai, Thailand and Stuart Devenish, Director of Postgraduate Studies at Table College of Higher Education, in Adelaide South Australia.

1. Evangelical identity in a secular age

The problem of evangelical identity in the context of perceived social and cultural crisis is the theme of Mark Stephens’ paper, Evangelical identity in a secular age: The use of the Bible in the rhetoric of crisis. Stephens uses the work of Charles Taylor to consider the nature of this secular age in which problems of evangelical identity and identity formation occur. He then considers Rod Dreher (The Benedict Option) who proposes a strategic retreat from culture so that the church can survive and spearhead renewal in the future. Stephens points out that Dreher uses minimal biblical references and arguments; instead, Dreher argues from church history but also couches material in apocalyptic language. From this observation, Stephens turns to the Apocalypse of John in order to propose an alternative biblical approach to life today. His proposal is based on engagement rather than withdrawal, and forward focus rather than nostalgia for a presumed ‘golden age’ of Christianity.  In his conclusion he asserts the key need for love: ‘If we are going to creatively appropriate the Scriptures for the present age, the least we could do is to listen carefully to how crisis texts in Scripture are driven by love of God more than a love of the past, and a love of enemies more than love of safety.’

2. Religious Identity through the eyes of the outsider

The second paper is Religious Identity through the eyes of the outsider: What Thai Buddhist converts to Christianity can teach us about religious identity in post-Christian Australia by Jim Blumenstock and Stuart Devenish. It reflects on extensive research into the construction of religious identity by Thai converts to Christianity. Using phenomenological analysis, the authors consider two elements of religious identity construction in detail. The first is ‘strangernesss’ or the convert’s experience of disequilibrium. Strangerness is described as follows: ‘To their fellow Thai Buddhists they had become outsiders to their own lifeworld; and to themselves their alternation had made the familiar world of their childhood socialisation ‘strange’. The second element is the journey of ‘emplacement’ in a Christian home world that offered safe haven, restoration, and the promise of a hopeful future. These elements, assert Blumenstock and Devenish, are relevant to Christian identity in an Australian context because Australian culture is now post-Christian. Hence, Australian Christians must construct their religious identities as marginalised people seeking ‘emplacement’ in a Christian community. This identity construction within Christian community ‘enables them to draw their reason-for-being from the redemptive narrative as it is imagined in Scripture, without the necessity to ‘conform to the pattern of this world’ (Romans 12:2).

Excelsia College > Research > Research Seminars

Work in Progress Seminars

Purpose

The broad purpose of the Research Work in Progress (WIP) seminars is to support and mentor staff in their research activities as part of the coordinated research efforts of the College.

Specific aims of the WIP seminars are to:

  1. Foster a research community through regular discussion of internal and external research activities;
  2. Foster collaborative research, including inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary research, through discussion of internal and external research activities;
  3. Provide feedback from diverse academic perspectives on staff research outputs at critical times in the research process (initial ideas, formulating specific research questions or hypotheses, finalising methodology, data analysis, written or verbal research reporting);
  4. Facilitate dissemination of internal research outputs to the Excelsia College community and the wider academic community.
Dates and Times of Seminars

Seminars are usually held on the first Tuesday of each month, excluding December, January & February. The exact dates depend on staff availability. Meetings are held between 12pm and 1pm.

 

Format of Seminars

Formats include research workshops and seminars, writing workshops, and conference practice sessions. In workshops staff or invited external researchers briefly present some work in progress and invite discussion. In seminars an invited speaker presents research findings or discusses a research issue in a more extended presentation, but with at least 20 minutes of open discussion. Writing workshops are devoted to reading and providing feedback to works in progress in pairs or small groups.  Conference practice sessions include the presentation of a paper prepared for a forthcoming conference plus discussion of the content and mode of presentation.

Supervision Workshops

Supervision workshops address topics related to best practice in the supervision of HDR candidates. They form part of the ongoing professional development of staff engaged in HDR supervision.

Writing Retreat

Objectives of the three-day writing retreat are to write part or all of a research paper; learn about and share useful information about writing and publishing; and develop research collaborations in areas of mutual interest.

Symposia

Research symposia provide opportunities for a number of presentations on related topics by invited speakers. Open symposia include staff and international experts as speakers; HDR symposia feature the research of HDR candidates.

Excelsia CollegeResearch > Why Research?

Why research?

Research is an essential activity for staff and postgraduate students at Excelsia College. High quality research generates knowledge that, in turn, informs teaching and professional practice.

Staff members engage in research as a way of contributing to knowledge in their own discipline and remaining up to date with current ideas. Consistent with the vision and mission of Excelsia College to provide excellence in Christian higher education, research by staff members often includes a Christian focus. Specifically, staff research includes projects that integrate Christian values and perspectives within their disciplinary area to the benefit of both the Christian and wider communities.

Postgraduate students normally study research methods and conduct research projects as part of their degrees. By undertaking research, post-graduate students are not only learning how to be lifelong learners, but they are also contributing to contemporary knowledge. As such, they are emerging as members of the scholarly community.
