Professor of Religion and Dean of the College Gary Phillips delivers the 30th LaFollette Lecture entitled, The Dominion of the Dead and the Witness of the Liberal Arts.

In his lecture Dean Phillips scrutinizes the Bible through the paintings of Holocaust survivor Samuel Bak, whose art changed the way Phillips reads the Bible and has led him to author and edit several books on the artist.

Phillips also reads from the last scholarly work written by Bill Placher 70, the internationally respected scholar, writer, award-winning teacher, and LaFollette Professor of the Humanities at Wabash who died last November.

Dr. Phillips has been visiting professor at the Drew Theological School and visiting scholar at the University of Toronto, Vanderbilt University, and in Urbino, Italy. He has served as associate editor of Religious Studies Review, Journal for New Testament Studies, and Semeia. He was a member of an American Academy of Religion steering committee on Academic Teaching and the Study of Religion. Dr. Phillips also has held summer fellowships at Yale University, Brown University, and the College of the Holy Cross.

In addition to his wide range of teaching and scholarly achievements, Dr. Phillips has done extensive work evaluating and reviewing curricula, academic programs, and faculty development for more than a dozen colleges and universities.

Dr. Phillips is a member of the American Academy of Religion, the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies, the Catholic Biblical Association, the International Bonhoeffer Society, the Society of Biblical Literature, and the Society for Values in Higher Education.
