Guest Speaker

Occasionally, I have been honored to present as a special guest in a class or conference. This is a privilege. You can review a selection of speaking engagements below. Video, audio, and visuals are linked where accessible.

Interview on Myth Narratives in the Hebrew Bible and in the ancient Near East

Spring 2020—My friend and colleague, Dr. Brian LePort, invited me to participate in an interview series he hosted for online courses on religion and the Bible. Across two interviews, I presented on the interactions of ancient Near Eastern cosmogony narratives with Hebrew Bible texts.

Guest Lecture on Misogyny in ancient religious texts

Spring 2019—My friend, Dr. Regina Psaki, invited me to present in a graduate seminar on Misogyny in literature at the University of Oregon. My lecture introduced the course with readings from a pre-ancient setting to consider as a potential religious and social context for more recent literature studies. The lecture was not recorded, but the excerpts from the reader may be made available. The reader includes summary notes on biblical texts as well as texts from other ancient Near Eastern mythological sources. It is not a complete work but provides a sample of the material in which males and females interact in ancient narratives, both divine and human.

Chapel Speaker at Northwest Christian University

Spring 2016—During a year when I taught Hebrew Bible courses at Northwest Christian University, now Bushnell University, in Eugene, OR, I was asked to present on the topic Holiness of God from an Old Testament perspective. Read more about Beginnings—Genesis and God’s Holiness.
