…Subverting Expectations: R. Crumb’s “Pro-Feminist” Interpretation of Women in the Bible” in The Comics of R. Crumb (Mississippi: University of Mississippi Press) edited by Dan…

I am a Biblical Studies tutor in Theology & Religious Studies at the University of Glasgow. My research is based in comic book adaptations of biblical material, reception history of the Bible, Bible and literature, Bible and art, women in the Bible/women and the Bible, gender in the Hebrew Bible. I studied at the University of Glasgow for my undergraduate degree, graduating in 2013. I also attained my MTh (title: “Sequential Art in the Seventeenth Century: An Analysis of Wenceslaus Hollar’s Etchings of Genesis 12-24”) and most recently my PhD (title: “Drawing (non)Tradition: Matriarchs, Motherhood and the Presentation of Sacred Texts in “The Book of Genesis, Illustrated by R. Crumb”) from the University of Glasgow. In my first year as a biblical studies tutor, I have created and developed a new Honours-level course on Women and Gender in the Bible and the Ancient World, and I also teach biblical Hebrew language, an introduction to the Bible course, Texts & Cultures of the Bible, and Honours-level courses in Genesis, Wisdom Literature and Old Testament/Tanakh. I also co-run a Comics Reading Group at Glasgow which runs every fortnight (you can follow us on @gucomicsrg on twitter) and we have a weekly podcast which caters to both academic and non-academic audiences.
