Book Section — Everyday Conversations with Dr. Rod Bush: The Radical Potentials of Mentorship, Intimacy, and Practice — by Chriss Sneed
This essay authored by Chriss Sneed, titled “Everyday Conversations with Dr. Rod Bush: The Radical Potentials of Mentorship, Intimacy, and Practice,” is a chapter in the anthology Rod Bush: Lessons from a Radical Black Scholar on Liberation, Love, and Justice, edited by Melanie E. L. Bush, and co-edited by Rose M. Brewer, Daniel Douglas, Loretta Chin, and Robert Newby (2019). Sneed reflects on the teachings and day-to-day work of Dr. Roderick Bush spanning across four years. Using autoethnographic methods to contextualize these memories, the author argues that three themes have emerged: intergenerational mentorship, radical intimacy, and a commitment to praxis. Sneed situates these memories within the field through a critical and intersectional feminist analysis. The chapter ends by highlighting how Rod Bush’s theoretical and embodied formulations of these phenomena have both contributed to the field of sociology and given avenues for creating transformative social justice practice.
