How can postgraduates, postdocs, and academics at the University of Oxford approach their academic disciplines as Christians? What does it mean to respond to a Christian vocation and to honour God in university life? Developing a Christian Mind: Seeking Wisdom examines these questions in four disciplinary streams: Humanities, Natural Sciences, Philosophy and Theology, and Social Sciences. Oxford academics and postgraduates speak and lead discussion for each stream. Past attendees are encouraged to come, listen to new talks, and take part in discussion with new attendees.

Conference Schedule:

  • Friday morning & afternoon: Day 1 of the discipline streams (check each one for a detailed schedule).
  • Friday evening: Joint dinner with students and lecturers at New College, following after prayer and drinks
  • Saturday morning & afternoon Day 2 of the discipline streams (check each one for a detailed schedule).

The 2018 schedule will be announced.

“I attended because I wanted to engage more deeply with how my faith and academic life/work/identity fit together. I also wanted to build friendships with others who are trying to do the same thing.”
