Announcing the departure of Dr Janice McRandal, Vice Principal and Lecturer in Systematic Theology

September 12, 2017
Staff Leaving

Dr Janice McRandal has made a decision to depart from Trinity College Queensland at the end of this year.

Janice joined Trinity in August 2013 as the College’s Systematic Theologian and toward the end of last year she accepted an invitation to become Vice Principal. Janice has been well-received by students. During her four years as a lecturer at our College, she lectured on theological topics such as Christology, Introduction to Postcolonial Theology, Bible and Christian Ethics, and Being the Church. We also appreciate that Janice has generously given her time to preaching and teaching in many local church contexts. In addition

to the pastoral care she has offered staff and students, our community has enjoyed her strong sense of humour and her keen attention to academic detail.

In addition to her lecturing and other contributions within the Queensland Synod, Janice has a strong record in publishing. During her time at Trinity she has published a monograph entitled Christian Doctrine and the Grammar of Difference: a contribution to feminist systematic theology (Fortress Press, 2015) and co-edited two books, namely Sarah Coakley and the Future of Systematic Theology (Fortress Press, 2016) and Whistling in the Dark: on the theology of Craig Keen (Wipf & Stock, forthcoming 2017). She also worked on a new called Contested Theology: bodies, sport, and motion (Fortress Press, forthcoming 2018) while on sabbatical the first half of this year. No doubt we’ll see her produce more research in the future.

We wish Janice well with her plans and I hope we will see her contribute cameo appearances at Trinity in the future. Arrangements are being made for a service to mark the conclusion of her placement at Trinity.
