In these corona times many lectures and seminars are made accessible through digital platforms, and all of us can join two VID researchers who will be presenting a paper in the Biblical Studies Seminar at Uppsala University. The researchers are Dr Beth Elness-Hanson (Johannelund School of Theology, Uppsala, and VID Stavanger, Old Testament studies) and Johanna Rönnlund (Sweden, MTh student in Bible translation, at VID Stavanger). Both are members of VID’s research group “Classical religious texts and global contexts” and its subgroup “CollECT: Colloquium on Epistemology, Context, and Text in African Biblical Interpretation”.

Beth and Johanna will make an online paper presentation on Thursday 7. May, 15.15-17.00, on “Women’s Ways of Blessing: An Intercultural Analysis of Poetic Blessings in the Hebrew Bible”. Please join the meeting at:
