I retired from full-time teaching in late June 2006 and am privileged to be a part of the Department at UALR. I received my doctorate in “Religion, Culture, and Personality” from Boston University and went on to teach at B.U. and Harvard. In 1990 I became the Bishop Anderson Professor of Religion and Medicine at Rush University in Chicago, and Chair of the Department of Religion, Health, and Human Values.
I am an ordained minister who (1) focuses on the academic study of religion and culture, (2) has taught practical and professional ethics for more than 20 years, and (3) cares deeply about the Beloved Community. I seek social justice and am involved in feeding the homeless. I delight in my family, the outdoors, opera, food and cooking, and good conversation
Courses regularly taught: Ethics and Society; Reading Sacred Texts; Psychology and Religion; Medical Ethics.
