Area of Interest: Religion, Race, Gender and Sexuality School: Vanderbilt University Email: email@example.com
I am interested in building bridge discourses between the academy and the black church around the relationships between race, sexuality and religion. I am interested in the possibilities created when the realm of the prophetic is expanded to include gender and sexual difference with commitments to abolish prisons, fight poverty and hunger, speak against war and militarism, and to take care of and heal the sick. My academic interests include various North American Womanisms and feminisms, contemporary Marxist thought, black church studies, and queer theory/gay and lesbian theology. I am interested in dialoging with black transnationalisms, North American and global postcolonialist thought, Native American and Indigenous religious thought, and in "provincializing Europe" generally.
