Kyle Gingerich Hiebert

Director

Kyle Gingerich HiebertAs Director, Kyle's vision for the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre (TMTC) is twofold: to deepen TMTC's key relationships in Toronto, particularly with the seven member colleges that comprise the Toronto School of Theology (TST), and to collaboratively expand TMTC's service to a wider Anabaptist/Mennonite constituency across North America and beyond. Kyle's research and teaching is in the area of systematic and philosophical theology. His first monograph, published as The Architectonics of Hope: Violence, Apocalyptic, and the Transformation of Political Theology, offers a genealogical reconstruction of the manner and extent to which the work of the German jurist and sometime Nazi apologist, Carl Schmitt, continues to have largely unrecognized and deeply troubling effects on contemporary political theology. His current research builds on this work by investigating the enormously contested theopolitical legacy of the great German idealist G. W. F. Hegel. He holds an appointment as Adjunct Assistant Professor of Theological Studies at Conrad Grebel University College where he teaches in the Master of Theological Studies program and is also Crosslisted Faculty with graduate status at the Toronto School of Theology, where he serves on doctoral thesis committees and sits on TST's Academic Council. During his graduate studies in England, Kyle was active in the UK Anabaptist Network and co-authored the book God after Christendom? Upon his return to Canada he was a TMTC Postdoctoral Fellow from 2014–2017.
