Concentration: Religion in the Atlantic World | Liminality and Identity


Kevin is a first year PhD student originally from Ferndale, MI. His research focuses on preachers and missionaries of color operating in the Atlantic World during the 18th and 19th Centuries, in particular how they constructed their own identities in the liminal space between white Christianity and their Black or Indigenous heritages.

Aside from school, Kevin enjoys hiking and kayaking with his wife Lizzie, singing in choirs, and relaxing at home with his two cats Basil and Gertrude.
