Far from being new to Maryvale, Dr Wojtulewicz is a lecturer on both the MA in Catholic Applied Studies and BA (Hons) in Philosophy and the Catholic Tradition programmes. He is also a free research associate at KU Leuven, a member of the International Society for the Study of Medieval Theology (IGTM), the American Philosophical Association, and the Royal Institute Philosophy. Dr Wojtulewicz's research focuses on philosophical theology, especially during the medieval period, and his recent publications include Meister Eckhart on the Principle: An Analysis of the Principium in his Latin Works (2017) and Meister Eckhart in Paris and Strasbourg (2017, with Dietmar Mieth, Marie-Anne Vannier, and Markus Vinzent).

We also extend our thanks to Bishop Elect David Evans for his leadership of the Philosophy programme up to this point. Fr David was appointed as Course Director in February 2014 and performed this role alongside several others, including his ministry as parish priest at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour (Rednal, Birmingham). We look forward to Fr David's installation at St Chad's, provisionally scheduled for June, and to his continued contribution to both the Philosophy programme and Maryvale Institute.
