Celia Deane-Drummond

Professor Celia Deane-Drummond is currently full Professor in Theology at the University of Notre Dame. She took up this position in August 2011 and her unique appointment is concurrent between the Department of Theology in the College of Arts and Letters and the College of Science. She was elected Fellow of the Eck Institute for Global Health at the University of Notre Dame in September 2011.

She graduated in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University and obtained a doctorate in plant physiology at Reading University prior to two postdoctoral fellowships at the University of British Columbia and Cambridge University. She subsequently took up a lectureship in plant physiology at Durham University prior to turning her attention more fully to theological study, obtaining an honors degree in theology and then a doctorate in systematic theology from Manchester University.

During her scientific career she lectured both nationally and internationally and published over thirty scientific articles. Since then she has published numerous articles, books, edited collections and contributions to books, focusing particularly on the engagement of systematic theology and the biological sciences, alongside practical, ethical discussion in bioethics and environmental ethics. She has lectured widely both nationally and internationally on all areas relating theology and theological ethics with different aspects of the biosciences, especially ecology and genetics.

From 2000 to 2011 she held a professorial chair in theology and the biological sciences at the University of Chester, and was Director of the Centre for Religion and the Biosciences that was launched in 2002. In May 2011 she was elected Chair of the European Forum for the Study of Religion and Environment. She was editor of the international journal Ecotheology for six years from 2000 to 2006. From July 2009 to July 2010 she was seconded to the spirituality team at the Catholic Fund for Overseas Development (CAFOD), working explicitly in the area of environmental justice and climate change.

Since 1992 she has published as a single author or as an editor twenty two books, as well as thirty three contributions to books and forty three articles in areas relating to theology or ethics.  Her more recent books include Creation through Wisdom (Edinburgh: T & T Clark, 2000), Brave New World (London: Continuum, 2003) ReOrdering Nature (London: Continuum 2003), The Ethics of Nature (Oxford:Blackwells, 2004) Wonder and Wisdom: Conversations in Science, Spirituality and Theology (London: DLT, 2006), Genetics and Christian Ethics (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2006); Future Perfect: God, Medicine and Human Identity, edited with Peter Scott (London:Continuum, 2006, 2n edn. 2010), Ecotheology (DLT/Novalis/St Mary’s Press, 2008), Christ and Evolution: Wonder and Wisdom (Minneapolis: Fortress/London:SCM Press, 2009), Creaturely Theology: On God, Humans and Other Animals, edited with David Clough (London: SCM Press, 2009) and Seeds of Hope: Facing the Challenge of Climate Justice (London: CAFOD, 2010); Religion and Ecology in the Public Sphere, edited with Heinrich Bedford-Strohm (London, Continuum, 2011).
