The Cambridge Theological Federation is delighted to announce the appointment of The Revd Canon Dr Andrew Todd to the position of Senior Lecturer and Director of the Professional Doctorate in Practical Theology at Anglia Ruskin University and the Cambridge Theological Federation.
Andrew is currently Co-ordinator of the Centre for Contemporary Spirituality, Sarum College, Salisbury. He was previously Director of the Cardiff Centre for Chaplaincy Studies (and is an Honorary Research Fellow of Cardiff University). He is a practical theologian and ethnographer, and has published widely in the field of chaplaincy studies. Publications include: John Caperon, Andrew Todd & James Walters (eds.), A Christian Theology of Chaplaincy (Jessica Kingsley, 2017); Chris Swift, Mark Cobb and Andrew Todd (eds.), A Handbook of Chaplaincy Studies (Ashgate, 2015); Jonathan Pye, Peter Sedgwick and Andrew Todd (eds.), Critical Care: Delivering Spiritual Care in Healthcare Contexts (Jessica Kingsley, 2015); Andrew Todd (ed.), Military Chaplaincy in Contention: Chaplains, Churches, and the Morality of Conflict (Ashgate, 2013).
At an earlier stage in his career, Andrew was Vice-Principal and Director of Studies for the East Anglian Ministerial Training Course (now ERMC) and was President of the Cambridge Theological Federation, 2000-2001.
Andrew is delighted to have been appointed as Senior Lecturer and Director of the Professional Doctorate in Practical Theology at Anglia Ruskin University and the Cambridge Theological Federation, a post that will draw significantly on his research in practical theology and the sociology of contemporary religion and spirituality. He looks forward to working with doctoral students as they develop as practical theologians in interaction with their professional practice; and to the privilege of nurturing students in their research and in skills of critical and creative theological reflection. His appointment represents an opportunity, not only to develop his work in practical theology, but also to return to East Anglia and be nearer to family. His new post comes at the same time as one for Catherine, his wife, which will also be based in East Anglia.
