Dr. John Swinton, University of Aberdeen (BD, PhD, RMN, RNMD)
Thursday, January 12th, 2012
The School of Theology would love your help in spreading the word about our upcoming Palmer Lecture for 2012. Dr. John Swinton from the University of Aberdeen has been invited to present on-campus. At the University Dr. Swinton serves as the Chair for Divinity and Religious Studies, as well as the Director of the Centre for Spirituality, Health and Disability. Dr. Swinton’s areas of study are diverse and multi-disciplinary; he has published extensively within the area of practical theology, pastoral care, mental health studies, disability theology and nursing. Alongside of this, he is ordained in the Church of Scotland and is also a registered nurse. Dr. Swinton is a dynamic, thought-provoking, and practical communicator who is sought out internationally. It is a real treat that he will be here with us!
The lecture is free and open to the public, and of interest to clergy and laypeople alike — any who are touched by disability whether by vocation or through relationships with family and loved ones.
