Huebner received a BTh from Canadian Mennonite Bible College, as well as a BA and MA in Philosophy from University of Manitoba. He holds a PhD in Theology and Ethics from Duke University. Prior to teaching at CMU, he was a part-time instructor in Philosophy at the University of Manitoba; a part-time instructor in Religion and Philosophy at Meredith College; and a part-time instructor in the University Writing Program at Duke University. Huebner's writing is primarily in the area of philosophical theology and can be located at the intersection of politics and epistemology, with a special interest in questions of peace and violence.
Anyone who reads Huebner's reflections and analysis of the habits that shape our lives—and in particular, how those habits threaten to erode the significance of memory for those who have lost the ability to remember—will be stricken by the gentle wisdom that informs his description of those whom he knows he must remember.
