Topic areas


The 2024 Online Conference Series is inspired by Key Themes from Arthur Peacocke's Work in what would have been his 100th year. Delegates are invited critically to re-engage with these themes from multi-faith perspectives and examine how they interact with the scientific, technological, and environmental challenges and opportunities posed by the 21st Century.

All Submissions MUST engage with conference themes at the intersection of science and religion. This engagement may include natural or social sciences. Ethnographic/sociological studies that address scientists' engagement with faith or how people of faith engage with science also fall within the remit of this call. Papers do NOT need to engage directly with Peeacocke's work, but MUST enegage with the conference theme.

As Cooper notes panentheism has experienced a renaissance at the intersection of science and religion. The conference will explore and challenge key themes around the God-World relation including:

•Metaphysical implications of pan(en)theism

•Panentheism and the quantum universe 

•God’s presence and action in a scientific world

•Space, Time, and Panentheism

•A connected world, stewardship, and environmental ethics
