MemberAndrew Bruce Crichton

I am presently writing about Melville’s influence on American art. I was trained in Shakespeare and medieval studies at the University of Chicago (Ph.D. 1970) and have taught at both the university and independent school level. I directed the first undergraduate foreign study program from the University of Florida, Florida Abroad at Utrecht, and set up the New Cultural Experiences Program for Carroll College. My interests in interdisciplinary and foreign study were formed as an undergraduate at Earlham College.

…Carroll College…

Eric Daryl Meyer grew up in the mountains of Colorado. As a theologian with strong interests in the land, wild places, and ecological degradation, his research focuses on all the ways that the Christian theological tradition draws boundaries between human beings and nonhuman animals. He earned a Ph.D. in Theology from Fordham University in 2014 and taught at Fordham and Loyola Marymount University (Los Angeles) before coming to Carroll. At Carroll, he will offer a range of courses, from “Ecological Theology” to “Healthcare Ethics” to “Animality and Humanity in the Catholic Tradition.” Outside of the academic world, he has worked in wilderness education, environmental advocacy, and outdoor recreation for over a decade—including a few years in Montana as a member of a ski patrol and a wildland fire crew.
