Research Interests

William's research dwells at the intersection of critical, hermeneutical philosophy and public theologies.  His dissertation, "Theological Plunderphonics: Public Theology and the Fragment," used the works of David Tracy, Paul Ricoeur, and Walter Benjamin to construct a method for contextualized approaches to public theology. 

William has presented nationally and internationally on a variety of topics related to theological and philosophical hermeneutics and method.  His essay on Hans Urs von Balthasar won the 2011 Albert Clark Award, sponsored by the Theta Alpha Kappa theology society.
