The Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies Oxford (CMCS) is pleased to announce its second conference on the intersection of faith and the ecological environment. The event on 1 March 2024 will be an in-person conference with the possibility to join online.

CMCS invites proposals for individual papers from postgraduate students, early career and established academics, as well as from professionals who have specialist expertise or unique insights about faith and the environment.

This conference aims to bring together perspectives from faith, from the professional community and from charitable organisations working in the sector of saving the environment, to address a number of environmental issues. It will focus on Muslim and Christian perspectives on the environment from environmental, theological and practical points of view, and abstracts are welcomed from both those with a confessional standpoint and those with none.

The scope of the conference encompasses all topics and disciplinary approaches relating to the study of Islam and Christianity and their encounter around the environment as a shared natural resource. Contributors are invited to submit an abstract of 200 words on related topics, including, but not limited to the following themes:

  • The Impact of climate change on Muslim-Christian Relations.
  • Muslim and/or Christian attitudes towards natural resource in crisis
  • Muslim and/or Christian initiatives to mitigate any environmental/climate change problem
  • Theology and nature
  • Religious conflict and natural disaster
  • Environmental justice and social responsibility in Muslim and Christian communities


The deadline for paper submissions is Friday 12th January 2024.
