Religion, Science, and Technology Studies

Religion, Science, and Technology Studies is an interdisciplinary area of focus that examines how science and technology shape religious culture, values, institutions, and practices, and how these phenomena in turn shape science and technology. This area of study may be combined with research in any religious tradition, geographical region, and/or methodological approach. Examples include but are not limited to a focus on the following areas: religion, science, and/or nature (e.g., nature/ecology/evolution, cosmology, consciousness, and the human person); religion and technology (e.g. transhumanism, posthumanism, artificial intelligence; climate and Anthropocene studies); religion, medicine, spirituality, and embodiment (e.g. bioethics; gender, race, disabilities studies, and animal studies, and intersections thereof).
