The Centre of Theology, Philosophy and Media Theory [cTPM] is an international research platform within the body of the Charles University, Catholic Theological Faculty, in Prague. Bringing together a team of young theologians, philosophers, theorists and thought-leaders, it aims to rethink and develop the resources of the theological tradition for a media-dominated world, providing access to a dynamic and vital source of support for (post)modern societies, contributing to the international academic debate, and providing education of the highest standard to an international body of postgraduate students. On a long-term horizon, the platform of cTPM aims to foster a dialogue between academia and contemporary society within the turbulent world of media and in the public sphere.
The cTPM provides a platform for the intersection of three research tracks: theology, philosophy and media theory.
• Theological research elaborates on new methods, new ways and new styles of doing theology while maintaining its scientific character as an academic discipline.
• Philosophical research carries forward various philosophical reflections on religion in general and Christianity in particular, with a special focus on theological turns in contemporary continental philosophy.
• Media theory research examines our everyday life experience of media and mediation with a special focus on the modern world’s ever-growing embrace of technical communication media.
