Intersections: Fall Edition Features PLU Faculty Members
Cover art by Sheila Agee
Intersections, Number 48, Fall 2018
Intersections is a publication by and largely for the academic communities of the twenty-seven institutions that comprise the Network of ELCA Colleges and Universities (NECU). Each issue reflects on the intersection of faith, learning, and teaching within Lutheran higher education. It is published by the NECU, and has its home in the Presidential Center for Faith and Learning at Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois, the institutional sponsor of the publication. Intersections extends and enhances discussions fostered by the annual Vocation of the Lutheran College Conference, together lifting up the vocation of Lutheran colleges and universities. It aims to raise the level of awareness among faculty, staff, and administration about the Lutheran heritage and church-relatedness of their institutions, especially as these intersect with contemporary challenges, opportunities, and initiatives.
This issue explores “civil discourse in a fragmented world,” and features articles by two of PLU’s own, Dr. Jeffrey Bell-Hanson and Dr. Lynn Hunnicutt!
