The provost’s office will be sponsoring a Faith and Learning lecture series Feb. 8 -9. Todd C. Ream, PhD will be our guest speaker. Ream serves at Indiana Wesleyan University as professor of humanities, executive director of faculty research and scholarship, and as senior fellow for programming for the Lumen Research Institute. He also serves as the senior fellow for public engagement for the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and as the publisher for Christian Scholar’s Review.
One of the goals of this series, especially from the keynote lecture, is to explore the emerging distinctions between secularity and post-secularity. Ream will explore how these distinctions and the pursuit of truth impact the Christian academic vocation.
