Amaryah Jones-Armstrong

Amaryah Jones-Armstrong received her bachelor degree in English Literature from Belmont University and her M.T.S degree from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. As a student in Theological Studies, Amaryah's primary focus is in the areas of political theology, continental philosophy of religion, and liberation theology. Her current research explores the relationship between supercession, economy, and race by foregrounding issues of the naming of God, black women's reproduction in relation to the law, and the role of inheritance in theological thought. Additionally, Amaryah is conversant with queer theory, black studies, critical geography, and the postsecular as discourses that help envision new futures in theology, economy, and urban life. She regularly blogs at womenintheology.org
