  • Christian Ethics (UG) 2018-2019

    In this course, I introduce the nature, methods, insights, and contested dynamics of contemporary theological ethics.

  • Research Methods (PG)

    I'll be contributing a lecture on ethics for our MA course on Research Methods. Will put materials here when they're available.

  • Religion in the Public Sphere (UG) 2018-2019

    In this course we confront the many dimensions of religion in the public sphere, the problems that arise, the nature of the role of different religions in public life, and the ways that it may serve as a resource particularly in public policy contexts. Based on feedback from students in 2017-18, I've completely revamped the course. Really excited for the next installation in 2018!

The course revolves around two projects (1) a paper in which you synthesise your scholarly understanding of the role of religion(s) in the public sphere and (2) a policy project, due at the end of term 2.
