Call for Papers

Often today debates about our policy towards the environment are purely reactive to events or to the current perceived risk of climate change. In contrast, this conference jointly mounted by Southwell Minster, Southwell and Nottinghamshire Diocese, the University of Nottingham Theology Department Centre of Theology and Philosophy and Nottingham Trent University Department of Environmental Sciences brings together theologians, philosophers, scientists and cultural critics to a Norman cathedral and to the historic Brackenhurst estate in Sherwood Forest to explore the specifically theological resources that can be brought to bear on our relation to the natural world. We invite short contributions of 20 minutes on any of the following areas: theology or philosophy of nature, theology of creation, history of environmental ethics, the human relation to the natural world, local ecology and local culture, religion and folklore, different religious perspectives and particularly those of religions other than Christianity, the role of cultural productions such as poetry, music, architecture or film as theological responses or critiques, the Bible and ecology. Papers addressing Nottinghamshire itself and Sherwood Forest will also be welcomed.

Please submit a 250 word abstract of your paper to or by post to Revd Canon Nigel Coates, The Minster Centre, Church Street, Southwell, Nottinghamshire, NG25  0HD by 1 July 2010.
