Doctors and the Divine:
the human search for God

This term all the preachers at Evensong are Fellows of the College. They have each been asked whether their academic subject in any way connects to the human search for God. The subjects explored range from Mathematics to Anthropology. You are very welcome to come and hear the views of our own professors within the beautiful setting of Evensong on Sundays at 6.30pm.

Preacher: Dr Marie Chabbert

Marie Chabbert is a Junior Research Fellow at St John’s College, affiliated with the Inter-Faith Programme and the French Department of the University of Cambridge. Her research draws on twentieth- and twenty-first-century French thought to interrogate how the so-called 'return of religion' at the forefront of international preoccupations affects traditional categories of thought and the definitions used in social sciences, as well as the impact it has on our way of relating to the world and to each other. Marie is a regular contributor to the Religion section of the French newspaper 'Le Monde' as well as to the French intellectual magazine ‘Esprit'. Alongside this, Marie is an elected member of the Executive Committee of the European Interfaith Youth Network of Religions for Peace (RfP), the largest international coalition of interfaith leaders, and serves as an interfaith ambassador for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism.
