Sarum College is pleased to announce the appointment of The Revd Dr Susanna Snyder to a multifaceted role in the College’s academic faculty.
As Programme Leader for Short Courses, Director of Research, and Lecturer in Theology & Ethics, Dr Snyder will coordinate and develop Sarum College’s short course offer and research programme, and contribute to learning on theology and ethics.
‘The academic faculty here at Sarum College is a group of dedicated and talented teachers and researchers who are committed to the thriving and development of our learning offer,’ says The Revd Canon Professor James Woodward, Principal of Sarum College. ‘The faculty will be much strengthened by the presence and engagement of Dr Snyder. Her reputation, skill and creativity will certainly enrich our work. I look forward to working alongside Susie and learning from her.’
‘We are very excited to have Dr Snyder with us as she brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise, as well as excellence in teaching and research,’ says Dr Jayme Reaves, Director of Academic Development. ‘Sarum is a hub of theological innovation where our teaching, research and collaboration with partners has real-world impact. The quality of Dr Snyder’s contributions is first class and the Academic Faculty at Sarum very much look forward to working with her.’
‘I am delighted to be joining Sarum College, a theological centre known for its academic excellence, creativity, hospitality and commitment to the transformation of society,’ says Dr Snyder. ‘I am looking forward to working with new colleagues to develop an already exciting programme of short courses, and I hope to support the growth of a rich research culture including through work with the increasing numbers of students on the University of Winchester research programme being supervised at Sarum College.’
Dr Snyder’s current research and teaching expertise covers Christian ethics, practical theology and Christian social and political engagement. She has a particular interest in faith-based responses to forced migration, and has written on the links between social justice, mysticism and the arts. Her current research explores contours and practices of hope.
