Congratulations Professor Abrahim
H. Khan!

We at UTP Journals would like to congratulate Professor and Toronto Journal of Theology Editor, Abrahim H. Khan, who just last week received an honourary doctorate from Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra.

Last week, Professor Abrahim H. Khan was conferred an honourary degree of Doctor honoris causa by Constantine the Philosopher University in recognition of his significant contribution to Kierkegaard studies, and his outstanding scientific, academic and pedagogical qualities.

Abrahim H. Khan is a professor and graduate director in the Faculty of Divinity at Trinity College in the University of Toronto and of the Toronto School of Theology. He is cross-appointed to the University’s Graduate Department for the Study of Religion, and is an affiliate member of its Centre for Ethics and its Joint Centre for Bioethics.

Khan formerly served as president of the Canadian Theological Society, chaired two program units for 10 years at the American Academy of Religion, and has held office on the executive of the International Association for the History of Religions (2005-2015). He is also a co-founder of the Institute for the Advanced Study of Religion (Trinity College), and convener of the Kierkegaard Circle (Toronto).

His teaching and research interests span Kierkegaard’s thought; philosophical-theological ethics; cross-cultural and comparative studies in religion and theology; science and religion; medicine and religion; religion and international diplomacy; and philosophy of religion.

He has published a number of notable works, including his Kierkegaard monograph series, “Salighed” as Happiness? Kierkegaard on the Concept of Salighed (1985), and Person and Boundedness in Wittgenstein and Tagore: Positioning Artificial Intelligence (2003), among book chapters, encyclopedia entries, and numerous journal articles in different research lines.

In addition to being editor of the Toronto Journal of Theology, Khan serves on editorial boards or as a co-editor of seven or more serial publications.
