“The new Information Technologies are already unavoidably embedded in our daily life. For many people, they are ‘the chief means of information and education, of guidance and inspiration’ (John Paul II, “Encyclical letter Redemptoris misio“, 7-12-1990, n. 37). We are in a new culture, a new way of being and thinking; so we can rightly say that, in social communication, our destiny is at stake. With my research and academic activity, I try to discern how to inhabit the new digital environment, taking inspiration from the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition.”
Born in Zamora, Spain, Martín Carbajo Núñez, OFM has lived in Rome since 1995, where he currently teaches ethics and communication at two universities: the Antonianum (Pontifical University Antonianum or PUA) and the Alfonsianum (Pontifical Lateran University or PUL). At the PUA, he has served as Vice-Rector and Rector Magnificus ad interim for three years. He also teaches regularly in Spain and the USA. Professor Carbajo studies the relevance of the Franciscan Intellectual Tradition in formulating a global ethic and facing the challenges of the new digital age. He also studies journalistic deontology in regard to informational privacy.
