Belief in Dialogue: Science, Culture and Modernity Conference
American University of Sharjah, UAE
21 -23 June 2011

 

Conference Announcement and Call for Papers


The Belief in Dialogue: Science, Culture and Modernity Conference, is being
jointly organised by the British Council, in partnership with the American
University of Sharjah and in association with the International Society for
Science and Religion. The conference forms part of the British Council’s
global Belief in Dialogue programme.

A list of plenary speakers includes Andrew Briggs (unconfirmed); John Hedley
Brooke; Philip Clayton; Paul Davies; William Grassie; Nidhal Guessoum;
Salman Hameed; Aref Nayed; Zia Sardar; Jean Staune; Mehdi Golshani
Munawar Anees; Ronald Numbers; and Keith Ward.

In addition to plenary lectures and discussions, parallel sessions will be
devoted to the exploration of three broad themes running through the
conference. These are:

• Science and Religion: Two Cultures?
• Cultures of Belief in Modern Societies
• Ethical Values and Human Responsibility

The latter theme will explore ethical issues in relation to environmental issues,
to questions of sustainability and to problems arising from new technologies –
including such controversial matters as stem-cell research.
A further stream within the conference will comprise a series of seminars
specially designed for 50 selected international student/young researcher
participants.

An open invitation extends to all who may wish to propose a paper on one of
the three themes identified above. Proposals for papers with a historical,
sociological or philosophical orientation will be welcome, as will those
addressing issues arising from contemporary science. Proposals will be
evaluated by the programme committee and, if successful, will be placed in
the most appropriate of the parallel sessions.

All presentations are restricted to a maximum of 20 minutes, with ten minutes
for audience questions and answers.

Submissions, which must be received by 20 March 2011 at the latest, should
take the form of a 200-word biographical statement, a 200-word abstract of
the proposed paper, and a summary, in not more than 500 words, of the
content and argument of the paper. Notification of the decisions of the
programme committee will be given as quickly as possible.

Proposals are to be submitted to Tracey McCluskey at the Cambridge Office
of the ISSR: tmm34@cam.ac.uk , with a copy to the programme co-ordinator,
Dr Amy Unsworth: aeu21@cam.ac.uk
Queries concerning the practical arrangements for the conference should be
addressed to Emma Baker at the British Council:
emma.baker@britishcouncil.org .

Further information, including details of the registration fee and
accommodation booking, will be announced shortly.
For those whose papers are accepted, there will be the opportunity to apply
for bursary to reduce the costs of registration and accommodation may be
available to assist young researchers and those who can receive no financial
help from their institutions. The cost of travel will in most cases have to be met
by delegates; but bursaries may be available to subsidise the cost for young
researchers and those who can receive no financial help from their
institutions. Assistance will be available for the procurement of a visa where
this is required.
