Tyndale University celebrates the recent appointment of Dr. C. Brad Faught as Visiting Scholar at Pembroke College, Cambridge, in England. Dr. Faught is the Chair of the Department of History and Global Studies and has taught at Tyndale since 2003.
“It’s a great honour to be recognized in this way, for which I am grateful,” says Dr. Faught. “Primarily, as Visiting Scholar, I'll be doing archival research and examining collections from various libraries.”
“What I’m looking forward to is being part of the senior fellowship at Pembroke, the professors of the college, for a length of time and getting to know other scholars.”
Dr. Faught will be on sabbatical from Tyndale beginning January 2023 and will be at Pembroke until the end of March 2023. In July 2022, his eighth book, Cairo 1921: Ten Days That Made the Middle East (Yale University Press), will be released. He plans to spend his sabbatical conducting further research on the history of the Middle East, during and after World War I.
“Tyndale has been very supportive over the years, providing faculty research funds, sabbaticals, and so on,” says Dr. Faught. “I've always seen teaching as an extension of research and writing.”
“Sometimes a particular idea comes to you while teaching, and it can then be taken out of the classroom, researched and then brought back in. There's a kind of symbiotic relationship between teaching and research, and I enjoy seeing how students react to and engage with new material.”
