Welcome to josefsorett.com

It is my pleasure to welcome you to my home on the World Wide Web.

As a scholar whose research and writing is primarily situated at the crossroads of African American Studies and the study of religion, this site is a stable of my work on a range of related topics – as they intersect and diverge – in the United States and around the world.

As a person whose faith continues to compel an engagement with questions that emerge out of the constraints and possibilities faced by folks in the real-time of everyday life, I hope that this site might be a resource for, and an opportunity to reflect on, your work.

As one who came of age on a steady, if uneven, diet of Hip Hop and Praise and Worship (and a range of other genres in between) as each music captured a popular hearing around the world, I am confident that a deep engagement with the complexities of religion and culture can help us imagine what it means to be human on more generative terms.

Continuing the conversation…
