Never in his wildest dreams did Glenn McCullough imagine that he was going to be awarded a grant through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), but his work on dream interpretation did just that.
“I had applied before unsuccessfully and I had heard that students in my department never receive these grants,” said McCullough. He was thrilled to learn that his project The Christian Imaginary: Approaches to Dreams and Dream Interpretation in Christian Theology and Pastoral Counseling was awarded a $20,000 Doctoral Fellowship grant.
McCullough’s work is on dreams and dream interpretation in western history, focusing on both theological and psychological approaches. “You have a spiritual experience every night when you dream,” said McCullough. “The unfortunate thing is that almost no one takes the time to understand what their dreams are saying, and I’m hoping that my work might be able to change that, in some small way.”
The grant will not only help McCullough in his research, but make life a little easier for his family as his wife Rachel is also a PhD student at the Toronto School of Theology, and together they have a two-year-old son, Colman. “Financial support is so important for doctoral research today – more important than ever,” he said. “We are so grateful for the many individuals and groups who support scholarship in Canada.”
Congratulations, Glenn!READ MORE
