RU99: DR RICHARD NEWTON, African American History, Religion, Culture – Rendering Unconscious Podcast


Rendering Unconscious Podcast welcomes Dr Richard Newton to the Podcast!

To support the podcast please visit our Patreon:

Richard Newton is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Alabama. He received his PhD in Critical Comparative Scriptures from Claremont Graduate University. Dr. Newton’s areas of interest include theory and method in the study of religion, African American history, the New Testament in Western imagination, American cultural politics, and pedagogy in religious studies. His research explores how people create “scriptures” and how those productions operate in the formation of identities and cultural boundaries. In addition to an array of book chapters and online essays, Dr. Newton has published in the Journal of Biblical Literature, Method & Theory in the Study of Religion, Religion Compass, and Religion & Theology to name a few. He is a member of the international scholarly working group, Culture on the Edge. His new book, Identifying Roots: Alex Haley and the Anthropology of Scriptures, published by Equinox in the Culture on the Edge book series, casts Alex Haley’s Roots as a case study in the dynamics of scriptures and identity politics with critical implications for the study of race, religion, and media. You can learn more about his research and pedagogy at his social media professional development site, Sowing the Seed: Fruitful Conversations in Religion, Culture, and Teaching.
