The Immanent Frame is pleased to announce a few changes to its editorial board, which was first constituted in March 2016 and continues to work alongside Editor Mona Oraby and Editorial Associate Olivia Whitener to bring content to the site.

First, we want to thank outgoing board members Ruth Braunstein (University of Connecticut), Anver Emon (University of Toronto), Vincent Lloyd (Villanova University), and Daniel Vaca (Brown University) for their many years of service to TIF. We are grateful for their commitment, creativity, and support in creating rich discussions throughout the site.

Further, we are excited to welcome the following three scholars who have been appointed to the editorial board beginning this fall:

  • Vaughn Booker is assistant professor in the Department of Religion and the Program in African and African American Studies at Dartmouth College. His first book, Lift Every Voice and Swing: Black Musicians and Religious Culture in the Jazz Century, was published by NYU Press in July 2020.
  • Nathan Schneider is assistant professor of media studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he directs the Media Enterprise Design Lab and is a resident fellow at the Center for Media, Religion, and Culture. He is the author of Everything for Everyone: The Radical Tradition that Is Shaping the Next Economy (Nation Books, 2018), God in Proof: The Story of a Search from the Ancients to the Internet (University of California Press, 2013) and Thank You, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse (UCP, 2013).
  • Todne Thomas is assistant professor of African American religions at Harvard Divinity School. In collaboration with Afro-Caribbean and African American congregants, Thomas conducts ethnographic research on the racial, spatial, and familial dynamics of black Christian communities in the U.S. She coedited the book New Directions in Spiritual Kinship: Sacred Ties across the Abrahamic Religions (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017) with Asiya Malik and Rose Wellman.
