‘Science and Religion in Latin America’ is a three-year project that aims to understand and document research into issues regarding science and religion across Latin America, a region undergoing rapid academic and economic growth. The intention is also to stimulate new intellectual enquiry and education in issues pertinent to science and religion and to promote international collaboration.
Project activities will include three international conferences, to be held in Mexico City, 19-21 October 2011, in Brazil in 2012 and in Oxford in 2013. The project will also involve translations into Spanish and Portuguese of key works, essay competitions for junior and senior scholars and a range of new publications.
This project is being conducted by the Ian Ramsey Centre at Oxford University, in association with the British Council and academic institutions in Latin America, and has been made possible by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
