Christopher Southgate

SRF role: co-opted Committee member

Associate Professor in Interdisciplinary Theology, University of Exeter

I trained originally as a biochemist, and still have an involvement in origin of life research. Since 1993 I have been teaching the science-religion debate at Exeter. I was part of the ‘Exeter Project’ on ecological hermeneutics, and gave the 2014 Sarum Lectures on the theme of glory and longing. I have spoken at a number of Forum conferences since 2002, and edited Reviews in Science and Religion from 2005-10. My other work is in Anglican ordination training, and I am also the author of six collections of poetry.
