CIP welcomes its new Director

last modified Nov 24, 2015 12:04 PM
CIP warmly welcomes its new Director, Dr Ankur Barua, Lecturer in Hindu Studies at the Faculty of Divinity, Cambridge.

After a fantastic summer of events, CIP embarks upon a new and exciting period this academic year. One of its key aims is to expand and strengthen its exploration of world faiths, including non-Abrahamic traditions. As part of this, we are particularly delighted that Dr Ankur Barua, specialist in Hinduism and the comparative philosophy of religion, has joined the team as its new Director. 

After graduating with a B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Delhi, Dr Barua went on to read Theology and Religious Studies at Cambridge’s Faculty of Divinity, where he completed his Ph.D. on the symbolism of time and embodiment in St Augustine and Ramanuja. He is now a Lecturer in Hindu Studies at the Faculty.

We warmly welcome him on board, and look forward to contribution his expertise will make to CIP’s knowledge and understanding of world faiths.

The new academic year also saw the arrival of three further additions to the CIP team. Jane Horgan was appointed as External Relations Manager in September; while in October, Giles Waller and Chris Moses both joined as Research Associates. The team is very much looking forward to working together to broaden and enrich CIP’s research, public education, events, and communications in the months ahead.
