Matthew Robert Anderson

Affiliate Professor, Theological Studies, Loyola College for Diversity & Sustainability; Honorary Research Fellow, University of Nottingham UK, Concordia University

I have extensive publications in two fields: Biblical Studies, and Christian pilgrimage and journey. I will soon be publishing a book titled "The Good Walk: Unsettling Pilgrimages on the Prairies" with University of Regina Press, and I have another manuscript on Scotland's Whithorn Way under consideration with Saint Andrew Press.

As part of my work on pilgrimage I've been invited to teach (as a Settler academic) on Settler-Indigenous relations and on bodily territorial acknowledgement. From my Settler perspective I've written on aware-Settler decolonizing hermeneutics and methodologies, as guided by Indigenous methodologies.

I'm also a published writer of fiction, with eight short stories in various anthologies, and a produced CBC Radio One radio drama.
