I am an independent scholar interested in critical analysis of contemporary plantation weddings. One component of plantation weddings is the participation of an officiating clergy member conducting the wedding. I plan to publish on this subject in a scholarly venue and in other media, though I am also interested in possible discussion on this topic.
There has been considerable commentary in the media, but I don't find much scholarly analysis. This is a topic with an intersection of the issues of race, religion, history, historical memory, gender, cultural geography, and slavery.
