Vincent L. Wimbush is professor of religion and director of the Institute for Signifying Scriptures. His current teaching and research interests focus upon the socio-cultural history, social psychology, anthropology, performativity, and politics of “scriptures” in society and culture. His area of expertise is Christian scriptures. He uses the complex engagements of such, especially on the part of subaltern peoples, as analytical wedge for ongoing theorizing and comparative research.
