My research explores the ways theology and religious institutions have shaped modern configurations of race, colonialism, and human-environment relationships. Drawing on political theology, black feminist thought, and political ecology, my project examines the above processes as they play out in contemporary climate politics, attending to religion as a space of contestation and intervention into these systems. I collaborate on this work with with Soil & Souls, an interfaith initiative which draws on Afro-diasporic and indigenous land-based spirituality to anchor climate activism in faith communities of color in the U.S. south. They work to build climate resilience, food sovereignty, and economic security through permaculture sensibilities. I am a member of the Minnesota Praxis Lab, a working group led by Dr. Kate Derickson which centers the politics of knowledge production in our scholarly inquiry and works towards producing knowledge for social transformation (see link above).
