Yohana Agra Junker, Claremont School of Theology
EFSR Board Member
Dr. Yohana Junker is Assistant Professor of Art, Religion, and Culture at Claremont School of Theology and is a Louisville Institute Postdoctoral Scholar. Her research probes the intersections among the fields of art history, eco-criticism, and decolonial studies, with special attention to contemporary Indigenous and diasporic art practices. In her writing, art, and activism, she explores the human capacity to imagine and retrieve generative ways of being even in the face of impossibility. She also investigates the ways artists create poetic spaces that allow viewers to come together, to reclaim agency and restore a sense of purpose, a thirst for justice, and a desire for transformation. Her artwork is central to her scholarship and activism.
