On Tuesday 21 June 2022 at 5pm, in the Harold Lee Room of Pembroke College, Alister McGrath and Bethany Sollereder will introduce their new edited volume.
The Ian Ramsey Centre is pleased to announce a book launch for its “Emerging Voices” project, designed to draw attention to the relative absence of young female voices in the field of science and religion, and to highlight some “emerging voices” with the potential to change this situation. The collection Emerging Voices in Science and Theology: Contributions by Young Women, edited by Alister McGrath and Bethany Sollereder, engages with the underrepresentation of female voices in the field of science and religion by showcasing the work of a talented international group of rising female scholars, which is not necessarily explicitly feminist in content or approach. All the authors featured are at a relatively early stage in their careers with diverse backgrounds and interests. Engaging with traditional and new questions, they promise to contribute much to the future development of the field of science and religion. The work also includes a chapter by Nancey Murphy, widely regarded as one of the most distinguished female writers in this field, which tells of her own journey as a woman in the field of science and religion, and offers encouragement and advice to others wanting to follow in her footsteps.
You are warmly invited to the launch of this work at a reception in the Harold Lee Room, Pembroke College, Oxford, at 5pm on Tuesday 21 June. Alister McGrath will introduce the volume, followed by reflections from Bethany Sollereder and Emily Qureshi-Hurst. We hope that we will be joined for this evening by some other contributors to the work, and we will invite them to speak briefly on their work and experience.
This event is free and open to the public. There will be a drinks reception.
