Lord Plant appointed to 415-Year-Old Divinity Professorship



Gresham College, London’s oldest Higher Education Institution, is
delighted to announce the appointment of Professor the Lord (Raymond)
Plant of Highfield, Professor of Jurisprudence and Political Philosophy at
King’s College London, as Gresham Professor of Divinity.

________

In his role as Professor of Divinity at Gresham College, Lord Plant will
continue the 415-year-old tradition of delivering free public lectures
aimed at the intelligent and interested public within the City of London
and beyond.

The series of free public lectures to be delivered during 2012-13 will be
on Religion and Values in a Liberal State: The Morals of Markets. The
hour-long free public lectures will take place at the Museum of London,
EC2:

Moral Values and Limits of Markets – Tuesday 9th October 2012, 1pm

Markets, Freedom and Choice – Tuesday 27th November 2012, 1pm

Just Markets – Tuesday 29th January 2013, 1pm

Selling Yourself Short: The Body, Property and Markets – Tuesday 26th
February 2013, 1pm

What’s It Worth: Values, Choice and Commodification – Tuesday 9th April
2013, 1pm

Trust in Markets? – Tuesday 14th May 2013, 1pm

These lectures will focus on some of the central ideas and principles that
make up a liberal democratic society and its associated market economy,
looking in detail at what a theological understanding can add to these
questions. Freedom, justice, rights, community, civic virtue, property and
charity – all of these are vitally important ideas and values in
understanding modern society and there is a rich tradition of thought,
including theological thought, about what they mean and how these meanings
should be reflected in institutions. Thinking further on these values will
lead to a better understanding of social justice and injustice, poverty
and freedom, community and individuality, and rights and obligations in
the context of a liberal capitalist society.

[Full lecture descriptions are available from the Gresham College website:
www.gresham.ac.uk]

________

Lord Plant has been Professor of Jurisprudence and Political Philosophy at
the Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London since 2002. Prior to
that, Lord Plant was Master of St. Catherine’s College Oxford from 1994 to
2000, and Professor of European Political Thought at the University of
Southampton. He is also currently honorary professor in the Department of
Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Winchester. His
academic interests focus on political, social and legal philosophy,
particularly conceptual issues to do with welfare, particularly ideas such
as needs, rights, obligations and community. He has published and lectured
widely on the role of religion in the context of a modern state, society
and economy. Since 1992 Lord Plant has been a Member of the House of
Lords, where he is currently on the Delegated Legislation Scrutiny
Committee. Previously he has been Opposition Spokesperson for Home Affairs
and the Chair of the Labour Party Commission on Electoral Systems, as well
as being a member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights and of the Law
and Institutions Committee of the Committee on the European Communities.

________

The Divinity chair dates back to the College’s founding in 1597. Gresham
College was the first higher education institution in England besides the
Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and it was created with the guiding
principle of providing free education for all. Gresham College has seen
the Royal Society formed within the College, and past luminaries including
Sir Christopher Wren, Robert Hooke, the Lord Bishop Richard Chartres,
Richard Holloway, and Lord (Richard) Harries. The College continues to
fill lecture halls for its four or so free public lectures every week. All
Gresham lectures are made available on the internet after the event, where
they join the online archive of over 1,200 lectures.
