新任教授 :: Brian Stanley to chair Edinburgh's World Christianity

Our university has recently announced the appointment of Brian Stanley (currently of Cambridge) to the Chair of World Christianity and Director of the Centre for the Study of Christianity in the Non Western World, commencing in January 2009.

人不在愛丁堡,悖得很。

原來剛好一個月前那場熱鬧而精采的重要選拔賽,已經有了結果。大學不久前正式宣布,委任Brian Stanley為 『世界基督教』教授,並出掌 『非西方基督教研究中心』,接替今年底退休的Jack Thompson

上月那場遴選,剛好在我交論文那天舉行,錯過了,我只趕及聽到同學們的結案陳詞 (對各候選人的評價),從中可窺見幾位候選人水平和表現都極佳,可以想像競爭頗為激烈。

Brian Stanley現任劍橋 『Henry Martyn宣教與世界基督教研究中心』主管,擅長於對中國和東亞基督教歷史的研究,大概會對敝校在這方面有進一步刺激。

希望對不惑的研究能有一些幫助

Excellent! I felt he was the right man for the job. Although the student responses were somewhat negative towards his presentation. I am very very happy for the Center.

卡卡西:不惑的焦點是經典文獻的比較,這可能非Brian Stanley所長。反而是假如你還有不少於1%機會重返北海續前緣,得到的supervision應該比前更豐富。

Edwin:Too bad I missed the presentations, but I am also glad that your puzzle that afternoon was resolved.
