The first Bridging the Two Cultures of Science and the Humanities seminar, funded by the Templeton Religion Trust is drawing to a close this week. The twenty-five participants have attended a month of lectures, workshops, and mentoring sessions with eminent scholars in the field, including Alister McGrath, John Hedley Brooke, David N. Livingstone, Markus Bockmuehl and René van Woudenberg.
The programme aims to foster in participants the interdisciplinary skills and understanding central to the study of science and religion, so that these early and mid-career scholars can return to their campuses equipped to lead corresponding discussions and research projects.
The twenty-five scholars will return to Oxford for next year’s seminar taking place from 3–30 July 2016 which will end with a conference on science and religion for the presidents of the participants’ institutions.
