Daniel Train, Postdoctoral Associate, 2013-14

Daniel Train was born and raised in Sucre, Bolivia, received his B.A. in English from Biola University, and his M.A. and Ph.D. from Baylor—the latter in religion and literature. His dissertation focuses on the work of Flannery O’Connor and readers’ attempts to understand her use of violence in her fiction. While finishing his Ph.D., Train also served at Baylor’s School of Education as faculty partner for freshmen learning groups. He is married to Hillary, and together they have a daughter named Amelie. Train loves porches, sharing meals with others, and enjoying the outdoors as much as possible.

Train will be joining DITA as its first postdoctoral associate, remaining for the full academic year, 2013-14. As well as working on his own research project on the topic of redemptive suffering, he will be teaching courses in theology and literature for DITA and participating in seminars with doctoral students.
