I am an interdisciplinary scholar, trained in ethics and constructive theology based in the [School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion](http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/schools/ptr/index.aspx) at the [University of Birmingham](http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/). I give regular [talks, workshops, and seminars](talks/) on topics like [climate change](project/religionecology/), data ethics, and design. Being skeptical about the efficacy of capitalism, I am working hard to rehabilitate the commons - and am an advocate for open source, open data, and open educational resources.
In my [research](?), I confront the ecological crisis by interrogating the ethical issues that lie at the intersection of “nature” and “culture” ranging from ecological ethics, activist studies, religious conceptions of labour and the philosophy of technology. I work in the mode of a field philosopher allowing an ethnographic and quantitatively generated understanding of grassroots problems and interests to illuminate my constructive ethical reflections

abstract = "This qualitative study draws on in‐depth interviews and documentary analysis conducted between 2014 and 2016 to investigate the nature of pro‐environmental behaviour of members within the Eco‐Congregation Scotland network. We argue for an integrative analytical frame, that we call “eco‐theo‐citizenship,” which synthesises strengths of values‐, practice‐ and citizenship‐based approaches to the study of pro‐environmental behaviour within the specific context of religious envi- ronmental groups. This study finds the Eco‐Congregation groups studied are not primarily issue driven, and instead have an emphasis on “community‐building” activities and a concept of environmental citizenship which spans multiple politi- cal scales from local to international. Primary values emphasised included “envi- ronmental justice” and “stewardship.” Analysis of the data indicated that groups in this network are distinctive in two particular ways: (1) group focus on mobilis- ing values and environmental concern towards “community building” can produce what looks like a more conservative approach to climate change mobilisation, pre- serving and working slowly within institutional structures, with a primary focus not on climate change mitigation per se but on the consolidation and development of the community and broader network; and (2) these groups can often under‐report their accomplishments and the footprint of their work on the basis of a common religious conviction which we have termed a “culture of modesty."

abstract = "For this Special Issue which confronts the ways in which the question of pluralism represents both haunting and promise within modern political theology, I explore the presence of pluralism in the context of the environmental crisis and religious responses to issues such as climate change. Following Jason Ā. Josephson-Storm, I suggest that models of disenchantment are misleading—to quote Latour, “we have never been modern.” In engagement with a range of neo-vitalist scholars of enchantment including Rosi Braidotti, Karen Barad, Isabelle Stengers, Jane Bennett and William Connolly, I explore the possibility of a kind of critical-theory cosmopolitics around the concept of “enchantment” as a possible site for multi-religious political theology collaborations and argue that this is a promising post-secular frame for the establishment of cosmopolitical collaborations across quite profound kinds of difference."

abstract = "Until fairly recently, consideration of religion has been marginal or even non-existent in the scholarly discourse about environmental politics. Renewed attention to the intersection of these fields has been encouraged by a recent widening in discussions of ‘environmental values’ to include the role of religious institutions and personal belief in forming spiritual environmental values and renewed attention to the place of ethics and religious institutions in global environmental politics. Following a range of historic declarations by religious leaders, the recent encyclical by Pope Francis signalled a new level of integration between Catholic concerns for social and environmental justice. Yet, much of the continued engagement by large environmental NGOs and governments has continued to ignore the complex interrelation of local, intermediate and transnational religious political ecology. In this article, which is based on data gathered during five years of fieldwork, primarily with British Christian REMOs (religious environmental movement organizations), I probe the complexities of political engagement with religious environmentalism which arise from the many different organizational iterations these groups may take. On the basis of such investigation I suggest that effective high-level engagement with REMO groups will be greatly enhanced by a nuanced understanding of the many different shapes that these groups can take, the various scales at which these groups organize, and the unique inflection that political action and group identity can take in a religious context."

"Navigating the space between the “ideology of expertise” and the solipsism of sectarian community - charting a path for practical theology in the 21st century"
I presented an invited paper as part of the "Futures of Public Theology Conference" this week. I was part of a panel on the future of practical theology and here's the abstract I came up with for the session:
One dimension which is often not fully appreciated regarding Alastair MacIntyre’s groundbreaking study After Virtue, is his foray into science studies and his critique of what he calls an “ideology of expertise”. Like many other qualitative social scientists went on to suggest in the science wars in the 1980-1990s, MacIntyre is critical of the supposed neutrality (and ascendance) of the 20th century data-driven researcher and bureaucrat. Against anyone’s expectations at the time, the science wars seem to have been won by qualitative researchers – and we see a marvelous array of highly focused and grounded studies in contemporary practical theology (commensurate with many other disciplines such as education, business, anthropology and even with economics, sociology, and politics). This focus on practices and practitioners in the context of their local communities has come to be a hallmark of contemporary practical theology. I will suggest in this paper that this grounded focus may have ascended to a position of hegemony and argue that the discipline of practical theology, if it is to continue to work with “empirical data” now needs to develop more robust quantitative skills and studies in triangulation with qualitative studies. I will even attempt to test whether there may be a theological rationale for such a position, in light of the critique(s) which have been sustained by MacIntyre, Hauerwas and Milbank of social gospel and social science.

I'm very much looking forward to delivering a paper at Cambridge on 30 January 2018. My host is the [Energy@Cambridge](https://www.energy.cam.ac.uk) research initiative. My full title for the presentation is: "Slow energy policy in a time of global emergencies: the perils and promises of energy policy and religious communities"
I'll be sharing some of my analysis of data that has been collected over four years (2013-2017) in collaboration with Scottish grassroots environmental groups, particularly Eco-Congregations.

I hosted a session for members of Quinton Christ Church on the topic of "Looking at finance and the economy through Jesus' eyes." Here was my provocative blurb:
Was Jesus a political radical pushing for systemic reform or a conservative voice for personal responsibility and stewardship of one's own resources? We will find the truth together by looking at some key biblical texts and discussing what a Christian view of economy might look like.

I'll be presenting a paper at the [Conference of the Centre for Global Ethics](https://globalethics2018.weebly.com) - which has the theme this year of "A Post-liberal World?"
My paper title is: "Crypto-currency and anarcho-crypto-capitalism: has technology made Anarchism a feasible political option (at last)?" Here's the abstract for anyone who is curious (slides and notes will be posted asap):
> One major problem for ethicists and political philosophers is the cultivation of "hope" – expanding the horizons of what options seem possible, particularly in the midst of oppressive neo-liberal regimes. Too often liberal democracy is seen as a lesser evil, or greatest but nonetheless quite modest possible political good. Some of this deference to the “modestly effective good” comes in the wake of the many preferred (radical) alternatives which are simply (and justifiably) dismissed as "impossible". Given the massive population of modern states in many instances, a persistent argument against more communitarian or anarchist political arrangements has been that of scale. Communitarians from Aristotle to Macintyre convey an awareness that the notion of radical democracy and the forms of consensus and inclusion which they imply simply do not scale past a certain critical mass of human participation. In this paper, I will explore the possibility which has been mooted by many techno-futurists that newly available digital technologies – particularly the federated blockchain which lies behind the recent innovation of bitcoins – may open up new and more participatory political horizons in the form of automated algorithmic contracts. The paper will include a brief introduction to the technology and a survey of some of the techno-futurist rhetoric which has begun to emerge in mainstream media outlets and then conclude with an assessment of blockchain as a political tool.

The purpose of this afternoon will be to take stock of what is possible in the digital humanities (at the University of Birmingham). Any member of academic staff in CAL is welcome – and let me stress that this isn’t just for serious programmers or data analysts, but anyone who may be considering how to take their research in a digital direction. We will have a series of presenters from across the college serving as provocateurs, showing off cool and useful tools and methodologies, and highlighting research challenges they have tackled with digital tools. This will be a true workshop – so will involve properly facilitated discussions for the second half as we explore possible themes or projects with one another. We’ll also have a range of talented people working in BEAR and support services to help connect up some of these aspirations with some of the in-house tech and support staff we now (in some cases very recently!) have available.

I'm presenting a lightning paper at the BASR in September. Here's my abstract:
Shockingly, there is no non-commercial database of places of worship in the UK. For this presentation, I will introduce preliminary results of a large-scale participatory research project which combined big-data methods with participatory geography to address this gap in data available to researchers. Begun in earnest in 2016, we have completed initial “seeding” of the dataset and now have over 40k geocoded places of worship hosted on a free geospatial platform. For this brief presentation I will highlight 3 key problems with geospatial data on places of worship (with a critical gaze towards Ordnance Survey and Google Maps), introduce our platform, and will offer 3 key research questions facing our team as we seek to ready this project for public (scholarly) consumption.

> In this presentation, I share some analysis of the results of a 4 year study into Scottish Eco-Congregations (2013-2016). I highlight some features of Scottish environmentalism as it is expressed in churches through the social movement "Eco-Congregation," particularly focussing on the mismatch between funding instruments such as the climate challenge fund and the kind of long-run, parochially focussed environmental citizenship expressed in this context, what I call eco-theo-citizenship. I also provide some scalar analysis, towards broader environmental policy applications, indicating some ways that Christian environmentalism is institutionally encapsulated, from local to international organisations.

I highlight some features of Scottish environmentalism as it is expressed in churches through the social movement Eco-Congregation, particularly focussing on the mismatch between funding instruments such as the climate challenge fund and the kind of long-run, parochially focussed environmental citizenship expressed in this context, what I call eco-theo-citizenship. I also provide some scalar analysis, towards broader environmental policy applications, indicating some ways that Christian environmentalism is institutionally encapsulated, from local to international organisations."
