Victor Thasiah, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Religion
Victor Thasiah teaches at the intersection of religion, ethics, politics, and philosophy. His areas of interest include: political theology; Christian ethics; global justice; human rights; religion, memory, identity, conflict, and violence; Christianity and Africa; Christianity and capitalism; and contemporary forms of anarchism. Dr. Thasiah is currently working on a book project called Rwandan Political Theology, which engages the political implications of Christianity for both church and society drawn by Rwandan Lutheran Christian communities before (as refugees) and after (as rebuilders) the 1994 genocide. He is also working on an anarchist ecclesiology.
Dr. Thasiah regularly speaks to community groups. To arrange for a speaking engagement, email him at email@example.com.
