Peter Travis Kroeker
Professor, Religious Studies

My teaching and research attend critically to the place of theology and ethics in western thought and culture. I am interested in the intellectual and cultural premises underlying the growing dominance of the technological paradigm in modern and postmodern societies, and in the religious, moral and socio-political implications of this spiritual shift in human self-understanding. I explore these and related questions through the comparative study of classic texts and traditions–the Bible, Plato, Augustine–and modern/postmodern works of literature, philosophy, theology and ethics. Current research interests include messianic ethics and political theology, and the relationship between immortality, ethics and political judgement in selected ancient and modern theologies. For a list of MA theses and PhD dissertations I have supervised, see the above linked CV.
