Jeremy Kidwell

Associate Professor in Theological Ethics

University of Birmingham

I am an interdisciplinary scholar, trained in ethics and constructive theology based in the School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion at the University of Birmingham. I give regular talks, workshops, and seminars on topics like climate change, data ethics, and design. I am passionate about building the commons - and am an advocate for open source, open data, and open educational resources.

In my research, I confront the ecological crisis by interrogating the ethical issues that lie at the intersection of “nature” and “culture” ranging from ecological ethics, activist studies, religious conceptions of labour and the philosophy of technology. I work in the mode of a field philosopher allowing an ethnographic and quantitatively generated understanding of grassroots problems and interests to illuminate my constructive ethical reflections.
