Justine Bakker

Justine Bakker is a Ph.D. candidate in the African American Religion cohort at Rice University. She’s currently working on her dissertation, a project that will engage Afro-diasporic literature, poetry and visual arts in an effort to rethink the categories of “the human” and “religion” in the field of Religious Studies. In 2019-2020, her research will be supported by the Charlotte Newcombe Dissertation Fellowship (administered by the Woodrow Wilson Foundation). Justine’s recent and forthcoming publications investigate African American forms of esotericism and query why these esotericisms (and those of people of color more generally) are so often overlooked or ignored by scholars in the field of Western esotericism.
