In this lecture, I read Beloved from decolonial and theological perspectives to explore the significance of flesh, in particular, black flesh, and enfleshing love.

African American Graduate students and Faculty are particularly challenged with respect to the exercise of leadership (as defined by the Center) within the Academy. As a way of addressing this, and in light of one of the growing areas of interest in the social sciences and humanities, the African American Religious Studies Forum provides opportunities for graduate students and interested faculty working in African American religion to: (1) dialogue with leading off-campus scholars in the study of African American religion who provide feedback on graduate student projects as well as advice regarding professional life within the Academy; (2) present their research and receive feedback, in this way they gain greater ability to provide and constructively receive critique; (3) international opportunities to present their research and network.
