Chris has been involved in a number of major projects in the last few years, including:

'Eating and Believing', an AHRC-funded project with Rachel Muers and David Grumett, looking at diet in the Christian tradition. Click here to read Chris's article on whether Christians need be vegetarians.

'Uses of the Bible in Environmental Ethics', an AHRC-funded project with David Horrell, Francesca Stavrakopoulou and Cherryl Hunt. This led to the following books:

Ecological Hermeneutics edited by the team and published by Continuum in 2010.

Greening Paul: re-reading the Apostle in a time of ecological crisis, co-written by Horrell, Hunt and Southgate and published by Baylor in 2010.

See Library for further details of these books.


'Interpretation and the Origin of Life', with Andrew Robinson, funded by the Science and Transcendence Advanced Research Series (ctnsstars.org).


See www.evolutioncreationsemiotics.org for further details.


Chris currently supervises four research students. He welcomes enquiries from prospective graduate students (email c.c.b.southgate@ex.ac.uk).
