Join us for the first meeting in the Religions & Politics seminar series. Joseph Winters, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and African and African American Studies, will be presenting a working paper for discussion: “The Gift of (Black) Death and the Limits of Recognition.”
Email Amber Díaz Pearson for a copy of the paper.
Dr. Winters’ research is concerned with troubling and expanding our understanding of black religiosity and black piety by drawing on resources from Af-Am literature, philosophy, and critical theory. He teaches and writes about religion and hip hop, religion, race, and film, critical approaches to religious studies, and the general connections between black studies and critical theory. He holds a Ph.D. from Princeton University and a BA from Harvard University.
