The course provides the opportunity to understand the ways in which readings of biblical women establish creative transactions between ancient patriarchal cultures and modern post-industrial cultures via counter-readings, misreadings and outraged readings, and more broadly, how this relates to our understanding of the place of the Bible in western society.

Field trips

The course will include visits to cultural sites to explore the ways in which biblical women are celebrated or lamented, and we will study contemporary retellings of biblical women in film, literature and TV to reconstruct their stories and reflect on their place in our world.
