Dr. Shatavia Wynn, assistant professor of religious and Africana studies at Rhodes, has been selected for the 2024 Hybrid Teaching and Learning Workshop for Early Career Religion Faculty Teaching Undergraduates. The workshop invites early career faculty in their first five years of full-time teaching to join a collaborative learning cohort for seven online sessions and an in-person, five-day, summer session at Wabash Center in Crawfordsville, IN.

Goals include helping participants to develop as critically reflective and imaginative teacher-scholars; to understand teaching in the changing landscape of higher education; and to reflect on practices that help teacher-scholars flourish and care for themselves and the communities to which they are committed.

Wynn’s scholarly interests include popular culture, phenomenology, aesthetics, and Black feminist and womanist thought. A member of the Rhodes faculty since 2022, Wynn holds a Ph.D. in religion and ethics and society from Vanderbilt University, a master’s degree in religious studies from Yale Divinity School, and a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and religion from Claflin University.
