Areas of Expertise: : Race, Religion, U.S. South, Liturgy, Hymnody, U.S. Presbyterian Church history

Overview

Mr. Kenneth Randolph Taylor is interested in the intersection of race and religion, especially in the U.S. South.  His M.A. thesis, "Dining on Jim Crow," explores that intersection, with public education added, in Clay County, Georgia, from 1954 (Brown v. Board of Education) to 1980 (the closing of Clay County High School).  He is also committed to the Great Man (and Woman) Theory of history.  More recent areas of private study and public blogging include Christian hymnody and liturgy.  He writes eight weblogs, including three seasonally-defined devotional sites and a poetry/family history weblog.  Taylor, committed primarily to teaching, seeks ways to help students learn and succeed, for he knows firsthand how an uncooperative professor can destroy one's academic program.
