Religion & Reimagining Black Futures

Description: The field of Africana Religious Studies has undergone significant reappraisal in the past 10 years. Specifically, the field has begun to actively, and from an interdisciplinary perspective, engage the idea of futurity and Afro-diasporic futures. Scholars from across the spectrum are advancing new approaches to understanding the human condition and social institutions in an age of intelligent machines, social media, and technological innovation. In this panel, we will look at the emerging approaches to Black futures in the fields of religious studies and American studies and how approaches from new media, social sciences, and brain sciences have opened new models for studying Black religious futures. Join humanities and social science scholars for a conversation at the intersection of religion, technological innovation, and Black futures.
