I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Newcastle, Australia. I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Manchester, England. My areas of specialization include philosophy of religion, philosophical theology and the history of ideas.
My research concentrates upon philosophical debates in the study of religion. Most recently, I've written about Jacques Derrida's deconstructive account of writing and religious books. As well, my publications on religious discourse in deliberative democracy are grounded in an evaluation of Paul Ricouer and Jürgen Habermas's hermeneutics. Such work arose from past research on the question of metaphysics in modern theology. In terms of teaching, my courses address great thinkers and the study of religion in the Bachelor of Arts. Much more could be said about Newcastle, but in sum, there are few universities as well suited to peripatetic thinking on the beach.
