Kathryn Tanner to Yale

Following other moves of theology faculty to Yale and to Notre Dame, it has just been announced publicly that Kathryn Tanner will be leaving Chicago and returning to Yale Divinity School, effective in July as with Jennifer Herdt.  Notre Dame and Yale now have two new faculty each, and Chicago will surely be looking for two senior faculty (along with Tanner leaving, they have chosen to fill Tracy's chair with an inside candidate, so that Jean-Luc Marion's chair is now empty as well even though he still teaches here).


  1. Just heard about this yesterday myself. Sad loss for you all, as losing Jennifer was for us; hopefully, since the whole world seem to be in flux, you'll be able to land some good new faculty sooner rather than later.

  2. Yale on the rise. Condolences to you and your Chicago colleagues, Evan.

  3. Wow, that's big news. I hadn't heard at all. Hope that this doesn't affect your plans at Chicago too much.
