> Hi there -
> My name is David Rutledge and I am a producer/presenter of "Encounter" at ABC Radio National. Encounter is the ABC's weekly religious feature documentary program, broadcasting across Australia, throughout the Asia/Pacific region, Canada and the USA.
> I'm currently putting together a program looking at some of the themes & issues that generally go under the banner of Postmodernism. Central to this exploration will be the question of postmodern ethics, and whether or not we're moving from an era of moral/ethical relativism into an era of certainty.
> With this in mind, I'm looking for a group of students to include in the program. What I'd like to do is get a number of people together to talk more-or-less informally about their take on certainty: certainty in moral behaviour, certainty in one's own sense of cultural or gender identity, certainty with regard to some of the bigger post-Sept 11 questions (e.g. does the West today need to rediscover its own cultural "anchor", as a response to the threat of fundamentalist terrorism?)
> The conversation will take place as a sort of seminar or group discussion, and will be pre-recorded and edited for later broadcast as part of a feature documentary program. Participants will not be identified on air. The discussion will go for an hour or so, and will take place in Sydney some time around mid-February (depending on when I can get people together). Venue yet to be arranged.
> If you'd like to participate, I'd love to hear from you. Main qualifications are a lively interest in the above issues, and an enthusiasm for talking & batting ideas around. Intimate knowledge of the complete works of post-1968 French theorists not necessary, although a broad philosophical acquaintance with what people generally think they mean by that awful term "postmodernism" will be helpful.
