The Australian and New Zealand Association of Theological Studies (ANZATS) council is pleased to announce the details of the 2023 Conference to be held online on 3–5 July.
As it did last year, the conference will include a Faith and Science stream. Please consider submitting a proposal by 10 April, indicating your preference for the Faith and Science stream.
Faith and Science
Convenors: Doru Costache and Nicola Hoggard Creegan
The conversation between theology and science is still an overlooked, albeit important, discussion in an increasingly secular culture dominated by science and technology. Two organisations in Australasia are prominent in advocating for and promoting this dialogue: ISCAST (the Institute for the Study of Christianity in an Age of Science and Technology) and NZCIS (New Zealand Christians in Science). Both organisations are committed to historical Christian faith and to actively promoting constructive conversations between theology and science broadly defined. Hence, they regularly seek conversation partners from theologians, philosophers, historians, educators, scientists, including social scientists, and technologists. This stream, coordinated by ISCAST and NZCIS, welcomes papers and panels that engage with issues of science and Christian theology.
