PhD students publish in Biblical Interpretation
7 December 2017
Two PhD students for the Department of Religious Studies have just been published in the journal Biblical Interpretation, Volume 25, Issues 4-5 (2017).
Biblical Interpretation publishes articles on various aspects of critical biblical scholarship in a complex global context.
Taylor Weaver, whose PhD project is titled 'St Paul and Money: A Philosophical / Theological Paulinist Critique of Economy', under the supervision Dr Ward Blanton, contributed the article 'Paul and Political Critique: Liberalism, Ontology and the Pauline Community'. This considers how St. Paul’s communal activity and writing allows for thinking through contemporary political philosophical problems inherent in the concept of community, a problem that forms partially around notions of individuality and how communitarian or collectivistic sensibilities arrange the individual.

Jenny Matheny, whose PhD project is titled 'Judges 19-21 and Ruth: Canon as a Voice of Answerability', under the supervision of Professor Yvonne Sherwood, contributed the article 'Mute and Mutilated: Understanding Judges 19-21 as a Mashal of Dialogue'. With the assistance of Mikhail Bakhtin’s work with dialogism, this study uncovers theological and political nuances in close readings of the Judges 19-21. Access the article here.
The special double issue has been edited by Yvonne Sherwood, who contributed an article entitled ‘Grammars of Sacrifice: Futures, Subjunctives, and What Would Have/Could Have Happened on Mount Moriah?’, which may be accessed here.
