Award-winning Transpositions blog (http://www.transpositions.co.uk) re-launches as the official blog of the Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts (ITIA), St Mary’s College, University of St Andrews.
ST ANDREWS, SCOTLAND (7 January 2013) After more than two years, 572 posts, and multiple awards – including the Christian New Media Awards and Conference 2010 Runner-up Best Newcomer Blog and 2011 Runner-up Best Christian Blog – Transpositions is re-launching as the Institute’s official blog. The Institute’s Director Professor Trevor Hart will now serve as Editor (ex officio), with the rest of the Transpositions team continuing on.
In the summer of 2010, a group of students in the Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts (ITIA) started discussing how they might bring the conversation of theology and the arts to a broader audience, one beyond the academy. The result was Transpositions, a blog that takes its name from an essay by C.S. Lewis. Since that time, Transpositions has published posts by notable artists, practitioners and scholars including Makoto Fujimura, Daniel A. Siedell and N.T. Wright, a publishing record that led Matthew Milliner, Assistant Professor of Art at Wheaton College, to reference “the frequently sharp and prolific output of Transpositions.”
Upcoming symposia include Domestic Arts, Theology and Comedy, Beauty, Imaginative Apologetics, Sacramentality, Culture Making vs. Faithful Presence, Poetry and Natural Theology. In the coming year Transpositions will, as a general rule, maintain its regular posting schedule, and welcomes potential contributors to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
