Our friends at Regent College have an excellent line up of summer courses for those who enjoy mixing faith with literature.
Some highlighted courses are listed below, but check out the full list of courses here.
Dickens and the Divine (INDS 571) – June 1 to June 5
Instructor: Valentine Cunningham,
Professor of English Language and Literature at Oxford University
and Senior Research Fellow at Corpus Christi College, Oxford
Disney may have popularized Charles Dickens’s characters through A Christmas Carol, but the mass appeal of his work—and its Christian application—has been timeless. Immerse yourself in the fiction of Dickens the social critic, reformer, satirist, moralist, realist, and identifier of all kinds of evil and crime (inventor of the detective story for England!) in Hard Times and Great Expectations.
Coming to Our Senses: Art, Faith, and Embodiment (INDS 565) – July 20 to July 24
Instructor: Adrienne Dengerink Chaplin
Independent Scholar, Cambridge, UK
PhD (Free University, Amsterdam)
Adrienne Dengerink Chaplin is a philosopher of art with a particular interest in materiality and meaning, and the relationship between faith and art. Born in the Netherlands, Adrienne gained her PhD in philosophy from the Free University of Amsterdam. From 1999 until 2007 Adrienne taught philosophical aesthetics at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto, during which time she also served as President of the Canadian Society for Aesthetics. She is co-author of 'Art and Soul: Signposts for Christians in the Arts' (IVP) and currently works as a freelance writer and speaker, based in Cambridge, UK.
