Join us for “The Concubine in the Refrigerator: Objectifying Women in Comics and Scripture” by Esther Brownsmith at Brandeis University.

Esther Brownsmith is a Ph.D. candidate at Brandeis University in Bible and ancient near east studies; her interests include intersectionality, intertextuality and interpretive techniques. Her dissertation, “Inconspicuous Consumption: Conceptual Metaphors of Women as Food in the Deuteronomistic History,” explores three biblical texts of violence against women as they metaphorically portray the women as food. In her work, Esther draws on Brandeis’s rich tradition of philological exegesis, applying it to modern questions of gender and violence. Read more about Brownsmith’s work in Fresh Ideas from HBI.
