Presenter: Professor Peter Harrison BSc, BA (Hons), PhD (Qld), MA (Yale), MA, DLitt (Oxford), FAHA. Director, The Centre for the History of European Discourses, University of Queensland.

Peter Harrison is an Australian Laureate Fellow and Director of CHED. He was educated at the University of Queensland and Yale University. Before taking up his present position in 2012, he was for a number of year the Idreos Professor of Science and Religion and Director of the Ian Ramsey Centre at the University of Oxford.

He has published extensively in the area of intellectual history with a focus on the philosophical, scientific and religious thought of the early modern period. He has been a Visiting Fellow at Oxford, Yale, and Princeton, is a founding member of the International Society for Science and Religion, and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities. In 2011 he delivered the Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh.

His five books include, most recently, The Territories of Science and Religion (Chicago, 2015), Wrestling with Nature: From Omens to Science (Chicago, 2011)—an edited collection which surveys conceptions of science from antiquity to the present—and The Cambridge Companion to Science and Religion (Cambridge, 2010). He has published over 70 articles or book chapters.

Some Indooroopilly people will remember Peter from some decades ago as a talented composer and powerful lead guitar musician in a series of rock operas on religious themes staged at the site of these seminars.
