Organized by the British Academy in partnership with Queen’s University Belfast, the 2021 McCosh Lecture will be given by Revd Professor Sarah Coakley FBA. This lecture, originally the Annual Religious Studies Lecture, is named in honour of James McCosh (1811-1894) who was appointed to the Chair of Logic and Metaphysics at Queen’s University Belfast in 1850. His sphere of influence was extensive, not only as a leading moral philosopher and educationalist, but as a pioneer of modern psychology and as a prominent advocate for the reconciliation of evolution and religion.
