Geordan Hammond BA, MA, PhD (Manchester), FRHistS
Senior Lecturer in Church History and Wesley Studies and Director of the Manchester Wesley Research Centre
My teaching is inspired by reflecting on what the ‘great cloud of witnesses’ throughout the history of the church have to say to us today.
I am Senior Lecturer in Church History and Wesley Studies and Director of the Manchester Wesley Research Centre (MWRC). I am co-editor of Wesley and Methodist Studies, an Honorary Research Fellow of The University of Manchester and Australasian Centre for Wesleyan Research, and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. I serve on the editorial board of Methodist Review and the committees of the Church of England Record Society, Methodist-related Theological Schools in Europe, and Wesley Historical Society, and am co-convenor of the Wesley Studies group for the 2018 Oxford Institute of Methodist Theological Studies.
I teach and supervise in the areas of church history and Methodist/Wesleyan studies. I would welcome enquiries from prospective doctoral students in Methodist/Wesleyan studies and other areas of church history and historical theology.
In April 2017 I completed a period of research leave on an ongoing project aimed at producing a scholarly edition of George Whitefield’s (1714-1770) correspondence. My recent publications include, George Whitefield: Life, Context, and Legacy, co-edited with David Ceri Jones (Oxford University Press, 2016) and John Wesley in America: Restoring Primitive Christianity (Oxford University Press, 2014).
