SCIO announces an exciting new opportunity for selected postdoctoral researchers at the University of Oxford and early career faculty members from relevant member institutions of the CCCU to participate in webinar courses focused on science’s interactions with broader societal forces, including Christianity. These courses are funded by the John Templeton Foundation and is organized by SCIO (Scholarship & Christianity in Oxford).
The courses will provide an opportunity for a group of eight faculty members to engage with leading scholars including Peter Harrison, Elaine Ecklund, Philip Clayton, Tremper Longman, Benno van den Toren, and Sarah Lane Ritchie to examine the larger social and cultural contexts within which science is located, and to reflect on specific intersections between science and those contexts. Over the next academic year (2020-2021), the courses will each meet 8 times for approximately 1-1.5 hours each time. There is no charge for the courses and all reading materials will be provided.
More detailed information about the courses, including eligibility criteria and how to apply, can be found here. The application deadline is 14 August 2020.
