Fernand Braudel Postdoctoral Fellow,
University of Paris IV - Sorbonne
Jonathan Teubner’s pursuit of knowledge and wisdom has taken him many places. He earned a B.S. in Economics from Oklahoma State University, an M.A. in Religion from Yale University, and a Ph.D. in Theology from University of Cambridge, and he is currently the Fernand Braudel Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Paris IV – Sorbonne. There, he is contributing to a multi-disciplinary research project titled “The Morality of Money.” For the last year he has been a visiting faculty member in religious studies at the University of Virginia.
Jonathan credits his time as a Witherspoon Fellow with influencing his decision to enter academia. His time as a fellow also impacted his faith. Jonathan recalls: “I became more motivated to impact society, culture, government, and my community after my experience as a Witherspoon Fellow.” Jonathan also credits his time studying under Alan Crippen for introducing him to important authors and thought leaders with whom he would have otherwise been unacquainted. In future years, Jonathan plans to both write and teach. And, while he hopes to make contributions within religious studies, he remains focused on the larger narrative of how the “the Spirit is moving the Church toward Christ.”
