Jeffrey Shoulson: Not Your Hebrew School Bible - Sex, Lies and Love in the Torah

Sunday, January 21, 10 AM

Racier than most soap operas, more shocking than the tabloids, the Hebrew Bible is filled with stories that usually get left out from grade school education. This talk will explore some of those stories your teachers might have skipped, as we try to understand how biblical narrative grapples with the real life questions of sex, desire and betrayal.

Jeffrey Shoulson is Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Initiatives and the Doris and Simon Konover Chair at the University of Connecticut, where he is also Professor of Literatures, Cultures and Language.
