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.

From January, 1991 through May, 2016 I taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I began as academic staff but eventually transitioned to tenured faculty, achieving the rank of Professor by retirement in May, 2016. I taught undergraduate courses in beginning and intermediate Biblical Hebrew, introductory courses in Hebrew Bible and Early Christian Literature, Prophets of the Bible, History-telling in the Bible, Jewish Literature of the Greco-Roman Period, The Gospels, and Pauline Christianity. In our graduate program in Hebrew Bible I taught year-long studies on the Hebrew books of the Pentateuch, Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Job, Advanced Hebrew Grammar and Composition, Syriac Language and Literature, and graduate seminars on The Book of the Twelve, Philology and Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible, and Jewish Hellenistic Literature. I continue to guide the work of dissertators and serve on dissertation defense committees. In the fall of 2017 I will join the Minister of Faith Formation at Wayzata Community Church, Rustin Comer (Ph.D. candidate in theology at Claremont Graduate University) in offering a full curriculum of biblical and theological courses in the church’s adult education program. From January, 2010 through May, 2014 I served as chair of the Department of Hebrew and Semitic Studies, overseeing the transfer of its program of modern Hebrew into the Jewish Studies Program and the merger of the program in Hebrew Bible with Classics to form a Department of Classical and Near Eastern studies.
