PACT – AGRTP

PACT is dedicated to high quality research outcomes in public and contextual theology and has a history of collaborative research by scholars of many religious. A founding member of the Global Network for Public Theology and the Global Network for Christian-Muslim Studies, PACT is committed to becoming the lead centre in the Asia-Pacific region for research at the interface of theology and public issues.

PACT’s research agenda is that of public and contextually informed engagement with issues of national and global significance from a theological perspective. Australian or New Zealand citizens or Australian permanent resident are encouraged to apply for URC-PACT scholarships, which are generally for full-time study towards higher degrees by research. The three strategic research areas for 2017-2019 are listed below:

Christian-Muslim Relations

Given PACT’s close relationship with the Centre for Islamic Studies and Civilisation (CISAC), CSU is one of the few universities in Australia able to draw Christian and Muslim theologians together under the auspices of one Centre to produce collaborative research output. Building on that rare potential, PACT encourages research focusing, for example, on the history of relations between Christians and Muslims, theoretical frameworks for interreligious encounter, Islamophobia, religious radicalisation in both religious traditions and refugee policy.

Religious Social Services

The social service activities of the Salvation Army, Anglican, Catholic and Uniting Church, and now also Muslim social service agencies, receive substantial government funding. These agencies are already a large sector of the social service economy in Australia and are expanding with the implementation of the NDIS. They represent a significant public connection between religion and government in Australian society. PACT seeks to become a hub for research and consultancy with the aged care, family support and allied health agencies of the churches and other religious institutions.





Religion, Ethics and Climate Change

Effective action on climate change requires government leadership resourced by quality research and social policy. It also calls for leadership from scholars of religion and ethics. A reconsideration of how economists, ethicists and particularly the religions have conceived of humanity’s relationship to the planet is critical. PACT has developed the Climate Change and Hope: Religion and Ethics in the Anthropocene project, to be undertaken in collaboration with the CSU Faculty of Arts & Education, and eminent scientists, ethicists and theological scholars. The principal participants in the project are committed to supporting research that addresses the profound transformation of humanity’s relationship with the natural world over the last 50 years, and the future of that relationship.

Further information about PaCT is available at https://www.csu.edu.au/research/pact

The Centre undertakes multi-disciplinary and integrated research to create knowledge and capacity to deliver farming systems for the future. The Centre’s activities are focussed around three key areas – or research pathways – plant systems (crops and pastures), livestock systems (sheep and beef focus), and grain and meat quality.

The Centre is seeking high-quality candidates for two PhD scholarships to undertake research as part of a large, federally-funded project entitled “Dung beetle ecosystem engineers”. The successful candidates would be expected to commence in 2019 to study full-time at Charles Sturt University for three years. The successful candidates will undertake research as part of a broader study which aims to perform a targeted and monitored release of various introduced and existing species of dung beetles and quantify the impact of dung beetles on soil properties and pest life-cycles.

Scholarship 1 will focus on investigations related to dung beetle rearing. The study will cover reproductive biology of selected dung beetle species and will involve both field-based and controlled-environment experiments to determine optimal conditions for beetle rearing.

Scholarship 2 will undertake research evaluating aspects of dung beetle ecology and how management practices impact dung beetle activities. This will include investigating how dung beetle activity alters belowground processes, impacting soil quality and pest biology, alongside associated impacts on the productivity of grass pasture species.
