Biography

Dr. Moultrie’s scholarly pursuits include projects in sexual ethics, African American religious traditions, and gender and sexuality studies. She just returned from an academic leave spent at Harvard University as a Ford Foundation postdoctoral fellow.  She was also selected to receive the Dean’s Early Career Award, and was recently a participant in a Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Religion workshop. Outside of the university, Dr. Moultrie is a consultant for the National Institutes of Health and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender-Religious Archives Network.

Her forthcoming research project is a book manuscript focused on African American religious media and women’s sexual agency that will be published by Duke University Press. Other recent projects include a co-edited volume A Guide for Women in Religion: Making Your Way from A to Z, 2nd edition (Palgrave Macmillan 2014); a chapter “Critical Race Theory,” in Religion: Embodied Religion edited by Kent Brintnall (Palgrave Macmillan 2016): 341-358; and an article “After the Thrill is Gone: Married to the Holy Spirit but Still Sleeping Alone,” in Pneuma: The Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies 33 (2011): 237-253.

Her next project is a book length study of black lesbian religious leadership and faith activism, and she has in press “Interrogating the Passionate and Pious: Televangelism and Black Women’s Sexuality,” in The Sexual Politics of Black Churches (Columbia University Press). Within the larger American Academy of Religion guild, Dr. Moultrie is the Status of Women in the Profession Chair and a former co-chair of the Religion and Sexuality unit.
