  Virginia Tech Center for the Humanities Director Finalists Open-Forum Presentation - Sylvester Johnson  
(Academic)

The Open-Forum Presentation introduces Sylvester Johnson, the third of three finalists for the position of founding director of the Virginia Tech Center for the Humanities. Johnson is an Associate Professor of African-American studies and religious studies at Northwestern University. There he focuses his research on the intersection of religion, race, and colonialism. He also has a particular interest in exploring humanity in the age of intelligent machines. Johnson is co-editor of the Journal of Africana Religions. His African American Religions, 1500-2000: Colonialism, Democracy, and Freedom was published by Cambridge University Press, and his Myth of Ham in Nineteenth-Century American Christianity garnered the American Academy of Religion's Best First Book Award. He is now co-editing a volume on religion and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He holds a doctorate in contemporary religious thought from the Union Theological Seminary. There will be a reception immediately following the presentation.
