Introducing: Andrew Hudson
Wabash Center’s New Associate Director
Andrew Sinclair Hudson is a fourth generation Pentecostal who seeks and facilitates the intersection of making, learning, and studying in community. Andrew grew up in North Carolina and has lived in Tennessee, South Carolina, New Jersey, Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks, Ecuador, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he earned his PhD in Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. His dissertation, “The Pentecostal Construction of Race: Churches of God in the American Religious Frontier,” traced the construction of whiteness and the pathologization of embodied religions through Protestant histories. He also holds an MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary and a BA from Lee University.
Andrew’s teaching and scholarship is multimodal in form and he produces documentary film, podcasts, and material installations as well as traditional print media. Focusing on form and space, Andrew strives to expand the classroom, library, and archive beyond the university and into daily life. Currently Andrew is working on a project that seeks to practice and understand haptics in the teaching and study of religions. He currently resides in the Cincinnati metro region with his partner Samantha and their two daughters Grace and Eleanor.
