Welcome to the new site of the twenty plus year old UBC lecture series called the UBC Graduate & Faculty Christian Forum. It is an important ongoing interdisciplinary dialogue of issues related to faith and culture, faith and science. You will also find some info and archives/downloads at gfcf-ubc.ca for some time to come.
Here at this site, you will find news on upcoming events, commentary and reading suggestions (books, articles, related websites) to complement the live lectures, panels and discussions. We invite in top scholars from other campuses such as Oxford, Cambridge, Stanford, Harvard and MIT as well as giving opportunity to people in our local universities.
The blog dimension will also allow more feedback and ongoing discussion between events. It will offer us a chance to get to know each other more within the UBC academic community. There are both posts (dynamic) and pages (static details).
This series is sponsored by a committee of Christian graduate students and faculty at University of British Columbia in Vancouver, B.C. and recieves some of its key funding from the UBC Murrin Foundation. GFCF invites the entire campus to these discussions and debates while targeting faculty and graduate students in particular. Questions are welcome following the presentations.
