Description

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.”

Respondents: Aslan Cohen Mizrahi (PhD student, Divinity School) and Alexis Wolf (MA student, Divinity School).
Moderator: Simeon Chavel, Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible in the Divinity School.

This event is part of the series "Greenberg Book Conversations" sponsored by the Greenberg Center for Jewish Studies and the Seminary Co-op Bookstore. It is open to the public, but registration is required (see the link below).
