Joan F W Munro Professor of Historical Theology, University of Divinity

I am an historical and systematic theologian by training, with degrees from the University of WA and the University of Divinity. I have a particular interest in 20th Century German theology, Holocaust Studies, and inter-faith dialogue. In 2002, I was elected Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and in 2005 was the Sternberg Distinguished Visiting Fellow in Interfaith Relations in Cambridge.
