brandon is a graduate student, writer, culture critic, and (recovering) Baptist minister whose primary interests include theology, politics, and the intersection of race, gender, & sexuality.
As of late, brandon is exploring the queering of blackness, the role of the media in expanding the project of modernity, and the possibilities & contradictions that emerge when one utilizes fiction/film/television as sources for critical theory.
Currently, brandon is completing the requirements for his Master of Divinity at Emory University and feverishly reading everything in Octavia Butler’s canon of literature.
brandon is also one of the finding editors of The Parking Lot Blog; a blog created to synthesize the fearless dialogue that frequently takes place in parking lots once we leave buildings that infringe on our ability to speak freely.
