Ashley is the Post-Doctoral Fellow in Theology and Science at Regent College. This is a term position generously funded by the John Templeton Foundation. In addition to his role at Regent he is a research associate and sessional lecturer in ethics at Vancouver School of Theology and the honorary postdoctoral research associate at Trinity College Theological School, University of Divinity (Melbourne). He is also a member of the Centre for Research in Religion and Social Policy (RASP) at the University of Divinity.
Regarding his scholarly research, Ashley is the author of Reading Karl Barth, Interrupting Moral Technique, Transforming Biomedical Ethics (Palgrave, 2015). He is also a contributor to and co-editor (with Scott A. Kirkland and John C. McDowell) of both Correlating Sobornost: Conversations Between Karl Barth and the Russian Orthodox Tradition (Fortress, 2016) and Kenotic Ecclesiology: Select Writings of Donald M. MacKinnon (Fortress, 2016). He is also a contributor to and coeditor (with John Fitzgerald) of the forthcoming Treating the Person: Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Perspectives on Medicine and the Body (under review).
In addition to these projects, Ashley has contributed several chapters, articles, and book reviews across a range of subjects in theology and ethics. He is also an editor and series advisor (with Scott A. Kirkland) for a forthcoming multivolume series in moral and political theology with Fortress Press. That series, Dispatches: Turning Points in Theology and Global Crises, has invited several leading and emerging scholars across the Christian traditions to explore the implications and relevance of theology for the global crises of late modernity, offering creative, significant, and timely reflections on the problems and mysteries confronting our present age. In addition to editing this series, Ashley is preparing a forthcoming volume that takes up the question and crisis of technology. The working title of this volume is The Art of Living for the Technology Age. Finally, he continues to work on a project closely connected to his studies in both bioethics and the philosophy/theology of technology. Hugging Death, Anticipating Suicide will explore the themes of despair and hope in relation to medical assistance in dying.
