About Nicole Symmonds, MDiv

NSymmonds2019HeadshotI am a scholar, writer, editor, and speaker with a career that has taken me from one of the largest women’s magazine to the world’s largest faith and spirituality website to seminary and now a PhD program. I am currently a PhD candidate in the Ethics & Society course of study in Emory University’s Graduate Division of Religion. My research is at the intersection of Christian Social Ethics, moral theology, and women, gender and sexuality. I am particularly interested in Black women’s perceptions and performance of liberation, agency, and autonomy in social structures. I specialize in teaching and writing about culture, faith, and sex and I also speak on faith, sex, and culture within religious and social service contexts.

Business aside I am a practicing Catholic–for better or worse, an amateur foodie, a bookworm, and a couch pop cultural commentator–you want to follow me during awards show season.

Thank you for making this site a pit stop in your journey, I hope you’ll stay awhile and maybe even sojourn with me. All are welcome.
