Professors at Hope are often involved in many other activities relating to their profession. The past year has been ripe for professor publications, with four books being published by Hope professors.
Apart from giving birth to twins, Amanda Boyd, Adjunct Associate Professor of English at Hope, published a book in December of 2017 called “Staging Memory and Materiality in Eighteenth-Century Theatrical Biography.”
Dr. Boyd had this to say: “In this book, I am trying to assess the extent to which biographers can actually capture what happened on the eighteenth-century stage. In other words, how much of performance is translatable through time and medium?”
Roberto Sirvent is an Associate Professor of Political and Social Ethics at Hope, and he recently co-edited a book with Silas Morgan entitled “Kierkegaard and Political Theology.” This volume is a collection of essays by scholars of Søren Kierkegaard, one of the most prolific philosophers in all of philosophy.
The book was released March 6th by Wipf & Stock Publishing who stated, “Exploring Kierkegaard’s relevancy for this political-theological moment, this volume offers trans-disciplinary and multi-religious perspectives on Kierkegaard studies and political theology.”
KC Richardson is an Associate Professor of History at Hope, and he published a book called “Early Christian Care for the Poor: An Alternative Subsistence Strategy under Roman Imperial Rule” on August 8th. The book focuses on the history of Christians’ caring for the poor during the Roman Empire and is available for purchase on Amazon.
Carl Toney, Professor of Biblical Studies at Hope, published a book entitled “New Testament Foundations: An Introduction for Students.” The book is an expanded, revised, and updated version of the original book of the same name by Ralph P. Martin. The book focuses on the authorship, audience, and message of the books in the New Testament and will be available for purchase on Amazon and Kindle in the coming weeks.
Whether it be dissertations, church involvement, publishing, ministry, research, or preaching, the scholarly work of Hope’s beloved professors does not stop at the classroom.
