Week of victory!

It’s been quite a week for RPE..

Firstly – Professor Melissa Raphael‘s book The Female Face of God in Auschwitz (2003) has been listed by the American website Theology Degrees Online as one of the top 99 most important works of theology: ‘Even the most dedicated scholar couldn’t read all of the books covering Christian theology, but there are some we feel that every student of theology should read.‘  Melissa’s book comes in at 69, at the top of the ‘Women and Theology’ section.

Then we had the University of Gloucestershire Staff Awards event. RPE students came to support us – we had numerous nominations…
In the end – with lights, music, balloons and excitement – we walked away with a armful of awards!

Roy was awarded a University Teaching Fellowship (as was Dr Debby Thacker from English Lit – in the pic too), Will received an award for Most Engaging Module (in the whole Uni, voted for by students, for his module on Spinoza), and Dave won the ‘Inspiring Colleague’ award.
