Joseph E. Brito (he, him) is a PhD candidate (ABD) at the Department of Religions & Cultures, Concordia University. He holds a BTh and MA from the Université de Montréal in the field of Theology, as well as studies in English literature and Humanities. His dissertation focuses on the language of slavery and otherness in Paul's letter to the Galatians, using a minority lens (Latinx hermeneutics). Joseph's scholarly interests are centered on the topic of Roman slavery, early Christian literature, religion and philosophy in Greco-Roman antiquity, and the narrative portrayal of marginalized figures in canonical and apocryphal literature. Because of his Salvadorian origins, he is also interested in the history of Hispanic/Latinx population in Canada and their cultural and religious expressions.
