ROBERT K. PEACH, PhD
at the intersection of race, religion and sexuality
Greetings and thank you for visiting my site -- a collection of online content I've published over the last decade stemming from research and practice as a whiteness studies scholar, a secondary and post-secondary school educator, a local journalist and as a social worker doing community outreach for a homeless housing provider in California's rural Humboldt County. My background includes formal schooling in literary studies (BA, English, La Salle University, Philadelphia, 2005; MA, English, Arcadia University, Philadelphia, 2008) and religious studies (BA, Religion, La Salle University, 2005; MA, Theology, Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, 2012; PhD, Theology, Graduate Theological Union, 2018).
I write about culture, politics and people through personal narrative. My preferred delivery is creative nonfiction with a sociological emphasis on intersectionality as I explore the identity politics of growing up gay and Catholic through a depth psychological and race critical lens. In particular, my writing is informed by the underground sensibilities of Black American thinking, being and doing.
My online portfolio is divided by category according to style of content and includes pieces for popular outlets, academic circles, courses taught and personal blogging. Contact me via email or social media. I am always open to new conversation partners. You'll find my email address and full CV on the Contact page.
