In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic we held our first ever Faraday Institute summer course online. Although we haven’t been able to offer some of the things which we know people value from meeting in person, it’s been an enjoyable challenge to bring you this free online version in the comfort of your own home! We do hope that you feel you’ve benefited from the talks and question times and that you’ll join us again in the future.
Course speakers include:
Prof. René van Woudenberg (Free University of Amsterdam)
Prof. Roger Trigg (University of Oxford)
Prof. Tom McLeish (University of York)
Prof. John Walton (Wheaton College, USA)
Prof. Russell Cowburn (University of Cambridge)
Prof. Simon Conway-Morris (University of Cambridge)
Prof. Cara Wall-Scheffler (Seattle Pacific University, USA)
Dr Sharon Dirckx (Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics)
Rev. Dr. Joanna Collicutt (University of Oxford)

Prof. Darren Evans (University of Newcastle)
Faith and science are often seen as uncomfortable bed-fellows. However, this has not always been so. In this series of webinars we examine the ways in which Faith and Science speak to each other in contemporary society and explore the theological and ethical issues which this dialogue raises. We aim to show that there is a better story to be told about faith and science than the prevalent one of conflict and mutual distrust.
