Associate Professor Jason Carbine, the C. Milo Connick Chair of Religious Studies, is the Garrett House Faculty Master.
Determined to make his appointment benefit students in their early years at the College, Carbine brings his lens as an accomplished scholar of religious studies and passionate interest in global topics to the program. He hosts musical, artistic, and academic gatherings; guest speakers; student-faculty joint presentations; and gatherings dealing with world events, among other activities.
"The goal of all of this programming is to continue Garrett's presence as a vibrant part of campus life and culture, by working with many constituencies across campus," says Carbine.
Joining Carbine in Garrett House is his spouse and well-respected faculty member Rosemary Carbine, associate professor of religious studies and director of fellowships.
After earning his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago Divinity School, Jason Carbine began teaching at Whittier College in 2007. His research expertise focuses on the history and culture of Buddhism in South and Southeast Asia, and on Myanmar and Sri Lanka in particular.
