In this episode we interview Ashon Crawley. Ashon is Associate Professor of Religious Studies and African American Studies at the University of Virginia and author of Blackpentecostal Breath: The Aesthetics of Possibility and The Lonely Letters.
In this discussion we ask Ashon questions from both books. Ashon delves into the context in which both works were created. Along the way Ashon shares reflections on religion, doctrine, on spirituality, theology, sense capacity, aesthetics, Blackness, Queerness and the crises, breakdowns and breakthroughs created through incommensurability.
The conversation is also animated by joy, by love, by loudness, by thinking of ways to be together, and of the otherwise worlds we can imagine and those that already exist.
Thanks to Ashon Crawley for sharing so much with us in this conversation.
