International Higher Education Academy of Science
An interdisciplinary and inter-confessional organization, IHEAS holds more than 30 international, national, and regional conferences, workshops, symposia and other scientific and educational forums each year. As a new comprehensive “section” of their current work, the Academy-Dialogue program organizes public lectures and seminars on the history and current state of science theology and education. The society engages educators and research specialists representing diverse perspectives to explore a broad range of topics in science, theology, mysticism, rationality, divine will and freedom, religion in modern education in the Post-Soviet area, and worldview and religious identity. The proceedings of monthly meetings, seminars, and workshops intend to encourage members’ contributions to the creation of educational materials and to various publications and journals. The Dialogue also hosts an annual international conference and plans to launch a website of proceedings and lecture materials to invite new members into the discussions. All materials produced will be published in a bound volume for wide, international distribution to educators and interested researchers. Members are also involved in translating contemporary Western texts on science and faith to expand available materials. Matching funds are provided by IHEAS.
