Black Flesh Matters

Essays on Runagate Interpretation
  • By Vincent L. Wimbush
Product Description
These essays, written over more than thirty years of Vincent L. Wimbush's career as a scholar, provide a response to the nearly universal, persistent, and sedimented modern-world hyper-signification of Black flesh, always needing to be framed, humiliated, policed, and dirtied. Because Wimbush is a scholar of religion as culture--having to do with social practices and their psycho-politics as regimes of knowledge, discourse, formation, and power relations--his ex-centric transdisciplinary interest in scriptures has been viewed, in some circles, as controversial. Yet it is Wimbush's linkage of the modern hyper-signification of Black flesh--leading to racialization and racism, especially anti-Black racism--to the scriptural as shorthand for discourse and relations of power that makes this work compelling.
