Dr. Vincent Lloyd of the Department of Religious Studies has been awarded a James Welden Johnson Institute Visiting Scholars Fellowship. The fellowship, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, focuses on research regarding the civil rights program from 1905 to the present, and is the only residential program of its kind in the country. The fellowship targets young scholars who have already demonstrated exceptional research promise, and provides them with time and resources to produce a monograph or another substantial research publication.
Dr. Lloyd is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Georgia State University, where he teaches courses on philosophy of religion, religion and politics, and race. He is also an affiliate faculty member with the Jean Beer Blumenfeld Center for Ethics and the Department of African American Studies.
Recent works published by Dr. Lloyd, available in the University Library, include:
“Michel Houellebecq and the Theological Virtues.” Literature and Theology, 23.1 (2009): 84-98.
Law and transcendence : on the unfinished project of Gillian Rose. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2009.
“Law, Grace, and Race: The Political Theology of Manderlay.” Theory & Event, 11.3 (2008).
Congratulations to Dr. Lloyd!
