Inquiry on Evolution and Human Nature

An exciting interdisciplinary dialogue between scientists and theologians, co-led by University of Notre Dame theology professor Celia Deane-Drummond, is set to unfold for the 2012–2013 resident year at The Center of Theological Inquiry (CTI) in Princeton, New Jersey. I invite you to learn more about our “Inquiry on Evolution and Human Nature” and to forward this information to colleagues in relevant fields. The project offers eight Research Fellowships of up to $70,000 and two Postdoctoral Fellowships of $40,000, with support from the John Templeton Foundation, for research scholars who welcome the dialogue between theology and science. The full Request for Proposals and a news story featuring Professor Deane-Drummond and inquiry co-leader Dominic Johnson of the University of Edinburgh are available on the CTI website, http://www.ctinquiry.org. Deane-Drummond’s research connecting theology, ethics, and biological sciences makes her ideally suited to be a facilitator of this conversation, which will explore how the explosion of new scientific research is challenging and changing understandings of the human condition, particularly in relation to religion and theology. Applications are encouraged from scholars in relevant disciplines, including the history and philosophy of science, evolutionary biology, psychology, anthropology, theological anthropology, practical theology, psychology of religion, and religious studies. In the words of Deane-Drummond, “What we want is the very best possible scientists and the very best possible scholars in the humanities who are prepared to work alongside one another in conversations about how to move this field forward.” I look forward to receiving applications from scholars in your program and their colleagues elsewhere who would like to explore our theme and generate ideas with a global impact.
