Winner of the H.G. Stoker Prize 2017

My article applying Herman Dooyeweerd’s philosophy to Security Studies has won the H.G. Stoker Prize of 2017, awarded by the Pro Reformando Trust, based in South Africa. The prize is a recognition of the importance of applying philosophy to non-philosophical fields of study in a way that promotes a Christian reflection on worldview and scholarship in line with the mission of the Trust.

Brill, the academic publisher that runs Philosophia Reformata, the journal where my article was published, is making the text available for free download for the next 6 months.

Teaching Awards 2015

A big “thank you” to my 2014/15 undergrad students at the University of Exeter who nominated me in the “Best Lecturer” category for the Students’ Guild Teaching Awards 2015!

I am moved by the gesture and encouraged to work harder on my professional development so I can serve my students better.

Congratulations to the winners in each category and many thanks to those sponsoring and promoting this important initiative.
