Professor Meyer kicks off summer with China visit

June 20, 2011

Proving that we’re always hungry for summer news from traveling faculty and staff, we offer readers this latest dispatch and photograph from Marv Meyer, Ph.D., Griset Professor of Religious Studies at Chapman University.

Dr. Meyer tries a roasted scorpion.

Dr. Meyer delivered an invited paper titled Albert Schweitzer, Reverence for Life, and World Religions at an international conference on “Morality, Spirituality, and Culture” meeting at Yibin University in China on May 29. While there he also met with an award-winning filmmaker to discuss collaborating on a future film about Schweitzer. And he also got a taste for local cuisine, consuming two brown scorpions at a market in Beijing. “I’m still trying to justify eating those scorpions with Schweitzer’s ethic of reverence for life,” Meyer confessed.

Like we said, we love the summer news. Send it our way at pr@chapman.edu.
