Terrance Wiley is currently an assistant professor of Religion and Africana Studies at Haverford College. Terrance’s work rests at the intersection of religious ethics, theology, political philosophy, and African American Studies, with an emphasis on nonviolent social movement theory and praxis. Terrance’s first book, Angelic Troublemakers: Religion and Anarchism in Henry David Thoreau, Dorothy Day, and Bayard Rustin, interrogates the theological anthropologies, ethics, political philosophies, and social theories of three exemplary American religious radicals. He is currently working on a prison reform activism project and a book of essays that explores how engagement with Franz Fanon and Martin King have shaped Africana social and political thought since 1968.
