Whilst all staff at Queen’s are active in research (in a variety of ways), the research programme is directed and managed by the research committee, chaired by Dr Andrew Mein (Director of the Centre for Research and Global Partnerships). Other members are: Professor Nicola Slee (Professorial Research Fellow), Professor Robert Beckford (Research Professor), Professor Clive Marsh (Principal), Dr David Allen (Academic Dean), Revd Dr Gary Hall (Co-Ordinator of Global Partnerships), Revd Dr Carlton Turner (Anglican Tutor in Contextual Theology and Mission Studies), Dr Dulcie Dixon McKenzie (Director of the Centre for Black Theology) and Dr Sinwoong Kim (Research Tutor and Administrator of the Centre for Research and Global Partnerships). The Director of the VU’s FRT Graduate School, Professor August den Hollander and the Graduate School Officer, Marieke van der Linden, attend meetings as required, ensuring close collaboration between Queen’s and VU.
As well as our internal academic staff, we have a range of external research scholars who contribute to the research culture of Queen’s by participating in research seminars and in other ways. They may participate in PhD supervisory teams, and/or act as student advisers.
International Research Consultants are world renowned theological scholars representing a range of academic expertise and church affiliations, who support and endorse our research enterprise at Queen’s.
