Garrett Ayers

Hometown: Columbia, South Carolina, United States

Academic Interests: Garrett’s interests are as yet a bit scattered. These interests include, but are not limited to: Modernist literature, African-American poetry, Jazz, R&B/Hip-Hop, New Testament Exegesis, American Religion, Vladimir Nabokov, Black Theology, and the potential intersection of all these things. He hopes over the course of the program to focus his interests a bit, or not.
