ASI would like to welcome Professor David Tombs to his new role as Professor of Theology and Public Issues and Director of the Centre for Theology and Public Issues at The University of Otago. Previously David taught theology at the University of Roehampton, and conflict resolution and reconciliation in Belfast for the Irish School of Ecumenics, Trinity College Dublin. His research focuses on public, contextual and liberation theologies, and their engagement with political, social, cultural, economic and environmental issues. He is interested in the interface of faith, values and public life in theology, and how theology can contribute to a common good in a shared society and in a connected world.
