Description   This course will explore the intersections
between biblical interpretation and issues of
gender and sexuality. Students will engage texts
from both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament.
They will examine a variety of methods in
biblical studies, with a focus on postmodern
methods of interpretation. They will also engage
in interdisciplinary study of contemporary
theories and strategies in the fields of gender
and sexuality studies, with a focus on Queer
Theory. Finally, they will explore how their
studies of biblical texts may contribute to the
sometimes-divisive conversations regarding issues
of gender and sexuality in contemporary
communities. Offered as both a live and online
