Jens Zimmermann is Canada Research Professor for Interpretation, Religion, and Culture at Trinity Western University, and Visiting Professor for Philosophy, Literature, and Theology at Regent College/UBC in Vancouver, Canada. He was Research Fellow in Theology, Trinity Hall, Cambridge University (2016-17), and Canada Research Chair for Interpretation, Religion and Culture (2006-2016).
In Oxford, he is Director of a three-year research project entitled "Christian Flourishing in a Technological World." This project extends Zimmermann's previous research on Christian humanism, theology, and hermeneutic philosophy by examining how technology shapes our conceptions of human identity and perception, of who we are and how we know, and how human relations, policies, and institutions are impacted, in turn, by these changes in human identity and perception.
Zimmermann is the author of Author of Re-Envisioning Christian Humanism: Education and the Restoration of Humanity (OUP 2016), Hermeneutics: A Very Short Introduction (OUP 2015), and Humanism and Religion (OUP 2012).
