Theory in a Time of Excess - Beyond Reflection and Explanation in Religious Studies Scholarship - Aaron W. Hughes

Thomas J. Whitley [+-]
Florida State University
Thomas J. Whitley received his PhD from Florida State University in Religion in 2016. He is interested in how difference is made meaningful, especially at the intersection of heresy, orthodoxy, and sexuality in early Christianity. He is currently working on a book that analyzes this intersection in 2nd-century Christianity through the lens of the little-known figure Carpocrates and examines how Carpocrates was reimagined by later Christians. Thomas regularly writes publicly on the use of rhetoric, classification, and identification in religion, media, and politics.
