In Landscapes of the Song of Songs (2017) Elaine James (Princeton Theological Seminary) “considers the way that the poetry of the biblical Song of Songs draws on human experience in landscapes, and how it creates human experiences of landscapes.” But she also poses a “larger,” and indeed “perennial,” question” — “What is the human place in the natural world?” It is a question, she writes, whose “significance is cross-cultural, and its domain … interdisciplinary.” Prof. James will be joined by respondents Aslan Cohen Mizrahi (PhD student, Divinity School) and Alexis Wolf (MA student, Divinity School) and the discussion will be moderated by Simeon Chavel, Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible in the Divinity School.
