Description

CSRS Summer Lectures 2013

Lecture 3 of 3 -

Offering Origins, Abdicating Analysis: A Response to the Scholarly Discourse on “Slave Religion”
K. Merinda Simmons, University of Alabama, CSRS Visiting Research Fellow

Analyses of “slave religion” have relied on “origins” rhetoric to explain the performances and evolution of African beliefs and rituals during the transatlantic slave trade. Professor Simmons will offer a counterpoint to this discourse, suggesting that “religion” is not a term that helps us to understand slave societies so much as it does the interests of the scholars deploying it.

K. Merinda Simmons is an assistant professor of religious studies at the University of Alabama. Her areas of research and publication include race and gender theory, literary criticism, and Southern studies.
