Amidst the hard secularism and pervasive individualism of the West the KLC Research Collective (KRC) is counter-cultural in its concern with Christian scholarship in community, rooted in spirituality, oriented towards how then shall we live? A central concern of KLC is to have a research community at the heart of our work, viz. the KLC Research Collective. Through the KRC we seek to facilitate communal, inter-disciplinary scholarship coram deo, for the glory of God and the flourishing of the church and the world.
“I have come to see that theological ethics or public theology, far from being a marginal discipline, is really the culmination of Christian insight from across the disciplines.
The niche we think KLC needs to fill is that of high-level Christian research across the disciplines oriented towards how then shall we live?”
KLC Director, Craig Bartholomew, recently presented For Such a Time as This: KLC’s Research Vision to a gathering of our Fellows and KLC community in which he shared some of our vision, core aims and ethos.
Whether you are an established part of our community, or wishing to learn more, we encourage you to read For Such a Time as This.
KLC has different categories of Fellows. Note that some of our categories are still under discussion. Associate Fellows are prominent scholars and practitioners associated with KLC. Active and committed members of our Research Collective are also called Fellows. Once a year we formally induct them as such.
Becoming a Fellow of the KRC means that you will enjoy supportive and generative intellectual community, be challenged towards excellence in your work, benefit from insights from other disciplines, and participate in communal projects. It means being better equipped and re-energised for your scholarly vocation. As a Fellow you will benefit from being able to draw on your colleagues’ expertise, help one another get publishing contracts, and promote the dissemination of each other’s work.
