Faculty Bio

Dr. Adam Hill

Assistant Professor,

Dr. Hill received his PhD from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. His PhD research investigated changing attitudes towards parish bells in England from 1533-1642, and how the function of those bells evolved during this period of religious change. Dr. Hill is interested in exploring how religious reform can be both a cause and a consequence of changes to the sensory landscape of any given historical community. Prior to teaching at St. Mary's University, Dr. Hill taught at several other universities in British Columbia, Washington State, and Germany. He is married to Lisa, and together they have a son and a daughter (twins!) who attend university on the west coast. When he's not teaching you'll find him exercising, playing sports, watching baseball or sipping scotch.
