HCC to host annual Humanities Lecture Series

 Rev. Dr. Rob Apgar-Taylor

(March 21, 2019)— Hagerstown Community College will host the annual Humanities Lecture Series on Monday, April 1, beginning at 7 p.m., in the Kepler Black Box Theater. Rev. Dr. Rob Apgar-Taylor, HCC adjunct faculty, will present about the intersecting beliefs of the Christian faith and Buddhism.

Founded in 1989, the HCC Humanities Lecture Series (formerly known as the Kreykenbohm Lecture Series), is an annual presentation providing opportunity for audiences to engage with renowned scholars, artists, performers, and the college community.

Rev. Dr. Apgar-Taylor has been teaching German and world religions at HCC as an adjunct faculty member since 2004. He graduated from the University at Albany with a bachelor’s degree in German and rhetoric and studied Germanistik at the Julius Maximillian Universität in Würzburg, Germany. He received a master of divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary, and a doctor of ministry in spirituality from Princeton Theological Seminary.

Having largely spent his career bi-vocationally, Rev. Dr. Apgar-Taylor has taught German and religion/theology at the high school, college, and graduate levels. He recently spent time in India and Nepal, where he intensely studied intersecting beliefs of the Christian faith and Buddhism.

Funded by the HCC Humanities Division, this event is free and open to the public and no ticket is required. For more information, contact Danny Webber at 240-500-2406.
