Bridging Two Cultures: Summer Seminars on Science and Religion (call for scholars)

Bridging the Two Cultures of Science and the Humanities 2015–16 is a significant opportunity for 25 early- to mid-level career faculty members from the CCCU and across the globe to experience an enhanced series of summer seminars aimed at developing interdisciplinary skills in science and religion. The project will also provide funding for new opportunities for students at their home institutions and a short conference for presidents of participating institutions.

The seminars, which will take place from 5 July to 1 August 2015 and from 3 to 30 July 2016, will focus on the need for participants to develop the interdisciplinary skills and understanding central to the field of science and religion, within the unique setting of Oxford. Theologians, historians, philosophers, and social and natural scientists will explore established and emerging science and religion issues, guided by eminent scholars. The seminars will train a new generation of leaders in science and religion in Christian institutions in North America and in the global south. Participants and those they influence will benefit from the superb resources for this field in Oxford and elsewhere in the UK and the rest of Europe.
