A Discussion with S. Brent Plate
New Books Network 2022
S. Brent Rodriguez Plate is a writer, editor, public speaker, and college professor. He's interested in how sensuality affects spirituality. His writings all circle around questions of the ways sense perceptions influence ways of being religious, and how religious traditions change our ways of perceiving the world around us. In other words, religion and spirituality are rooted in the body. Along these lines, he has authored and edited fifteen books, while his essays have appeared in many places. Having taught at the University of Vermont and Texas Christian University, he is currently visiting associate professor at Hamilton College, NY.
