Nathanael Inglis, assistant professor of theological studies at Bethany Theological Seminary, has resigned his position as of August 20, 2019. Inglis began teaching at the Seminary in the fall of 2015.
Inglis came to Bethany after completing his PhD at Fordham University, then spending two years in Brethren Volunteer Service in a Guatamalan indigenous community. His interest in Anabaptist and ecological themes influenced the courses he developed at Bethany and his professional presentations. During his tenure, he lectured at conferences in Ontario, Manitoba, British Columbia, and Belgium and was selected to participate in a Science for Seminaries faculty retreat through the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Inglis then assisted in securing a $75,000 grant from the AAAS to help Bethany incorporate scientific topics and themes into its curriculum.
“Nate brought expertise in ecological theology and various methodological approaches to the academic study of theology,” says Jeff Carter, president. “His concerns for social and ecological justice are reflected in his teaching, writing, and work with Bethany’s Green Circle committee, which promotes awareness about such issues. We wish him well as he begins this next phase in his academic career.”
Inglis will take a position as assistant dean of students at Columbia University in New York City this fall.
