The faculty of Johnson University participate in many activities beyond their normal teaching responsibilities, including writing, speaking, presenting at academic meetings, mission trips, and community involvement. Occasionally, we will publish updates on these activities. The list below describes some faculty activities in October 2014.
Dr. Leslie Hardin (Professor of New Testament) presented “Searching for a Transformative Hermeneutic” at the Western Fellowship of Scholars and Professors in Manhattan, Kansas, from October 11 to 12.
Dr. Gregory Hartley (Professor of English and Literature, FL) published an essay entitled “Civilized Goblins and Talking Animals: How The Hobbit Created Problems of Sentience for Tolkien” in The Hobbit and Tolkien’s Mythology: Essays on Revisions and Influences, which was edited by Bradford Lee Eden of Valparaiso University. The book was released by McFarland in October.
