Mark teaches and is also a doctoral student with the Department of Studies in Religion . His doctoral research addresses the long relationship and conflict between Christian mysticism and power within Western traditions.
Mark’s wide areas of academic interest and research also include philosophy of religion; the philosophy of Martin Heidegger – especially his later thought; apophatic mysticism and resonances in secular thought; Apocalypticism; Christian monastic and ascetic spirituality; histories of Western spirituality and theology; Liberation theologies, post-modern theologies; Pentecostal and charismatic movements; and growing interests in those aspects of both Hindu philosophies and Zen Buddhism which resonate with Western apophatic thought.
