About Me

My name is Benjamin Taylor. I am a PhD student in theology at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. This blog is meant to be a place for me to categorize my ideas, conduct thought experiments, and blog my way to a dissertation topic in the next twelve months.

I will attempt to write 4 five-hundred word blogs a week, where I will try out new ideas, and to sharpen my focus. I work at the intersection of constructive theology and social theory, and will seek to lift up theological voices from the margins. I do not pretend to be a cultural critic, so I will not try to be. However, since all discourse is political discourse, expect some political analysis.
