TWU professor of English and modern languages, Jens Zimmermann, Ph.D., has held the Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Interpretation, Religion and Culture since 2006. His research examines the role of theories of interpretation in assessing the interrelation of religion and culture. One of his particular interests is the role of religion in providing ethical guidelines and definitions for our essential humanity in post-Christian Western culture.
Zimmermann explains that the goals of the lectures are twofold-"first, to create an understanding that Christian humanism, throughout its patristic, medieval, Renaissance and modern variations, seeks to unfold the basic gospel message that God became human, lived and died, so that we could become fully human. The second goal is, "to suggest the importance of Christian humanism for current discussions about higher education," he said.
"Western university education is rooted in Christian humanism," said Zimmermann.
