Transhumanism and Supernaturalism, 2018 IRC Conference, Oxford, 6-7 July 2018


Following international consultation, the IRC is delighted to annouce that the theme and dates of the 2018 IRC Summer Conference in Oxford will be:

Transhumanism and Supernaturalism, 6-7 July 2018

This theme weaves together a wide range of contemporary research interests.

The theme connects also with perennial speculative and practical questions in philosophical and theological anthropology, exploring the various ways in which human beings have sought to transcend our innate condition.

A list of speakers and CFP for the 2018 conference will be published early in the Fall 2017.


For 2019, the summer conference theme will be around the topic of evolution and theodicy.

For 2020, the summer conference theme will be natural theology.
