"We Cleverly Avoided Talking About God": Personal and Pedagogical Reflections on Academia and Spirituality

By Susan Handelman

Courtyard, Winter 1999

The author examines the relationship between academia and spirituality in a postmodern world, sharing her experiences teaching the Bible and literature in a large state university. She argues that intellectuals and academics need to abandon their old fears of religious expression in the university, and to help guide the spiritual quest of their students and colleagues.
