The American Theological Society has elected Professor Charles Fensham of Knox College to membership. New members are nominated and elected by secret ballot, based on a candidate’s record of achievement.

The Society of Biblical Literature has recently published a Jobs Report for Theological, Religious, and Biblical Studies based on 2011—2012 data. You can download it as a PDF file here.

A key finding is that the number of academic positions increased markedly from 2010 to 2011, and plateaued in 2012.

A typical new position is a full-time tenure-track appointment. However, the report indicates that non-tenure-track positions are probably under-reported.

Johanna Selles, Associate Professor of Christian Education at Emmanuel College, has been awarded the Davidson Trust Award for excellence in teaching and scholarship. This is awarded by a unit of the United Church of Canada to a faculty member at a theological college connected with the United Church.
