Three GTU doctoral students receive prestigious national fellowships

Michael S. Campos, Andrea E. Davidson and Carmen R. Lansdowne, doctoral students at Graduate Theological Union, have been selected to receive a 2010 Fund for Theological Education (FTE) Fellowship, a competitive national award. Both Campos and Lansdowne were recognized as 2010 North American Doctoral Fellows while Davidson received recognition as a 2010 Doctoral Fellow.

Newhall Awards

Each year the Graduate Theological Union recognizes a group of doctoral students as Newhall Scholars, providing the opportunity to work collaboratively with core faculty to develop and teach new courses, lead research, and expand the boundaries of innovative scholarship. This year 23 scholars will present a broad spectrum of topics, including religious conversion theories, Asian American congregational identities, new media in worship, and the moral status of animals. These fellowships were made possible through the generosity of Jane Newhall, a Trustee Emerita and longtime friend of the GTU.

Imaginative Theology

“I believe imagination is the central part of our identity as humans, our belief system, and how we conceive of God.”

So says Graduate Theological Union 2007-2008 Newhall Scholar Jennifer (Jenny) Veninga, who will teach a course next spring under the supervision of Dr. George Greiner, on the relevancy of 19th century philosopher Søren Kierkegaard’s existentialist thought in the 21st century. “Theology,” Veninga says, “can emerge in the imagination. Kierkegaard wrote extensively about imagination, the media, and religious thought, but this work is seldom discussed among scholars.”
