Dr. Tamara Cohn Eskenazi, Professor of Bible, delivered a key-note presentation on "Feminist Biblical Interpretation in Interfaith Contexts: Challenges and Opportunities" as part of the distinguished 2013 Phyllis Trible Lecture Series held at Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC, on March 6-7, 2013.
This year's topic was "Feminism: Then, Now, and Not Yet." The other three invited speakers were Rev. Dr. Serene Jones, President of Union Theological Seminary; Dr. Nelly Van Doorn-Harder, Professor of Islamic Studies at Wake Forest University; and Dr. Monica Coleman, Associate Professor of Constructive Theology, and African American Religions at Claremont School of Theology.
The Phyllis Trible series, which began in 2003, honors Professor Phyllis Trible, whose extraordinary contribution and ground-breaking essay, "Depatriarchalizing in Biblical Interpretation" (March 1973) launched modern feminist biblical scholarship. Professor Trible has been the Baldwin Professor of Sacred Literature at Union Theological Seminary, and since her retirement from that position, serves as Professor at Wake Forest Divinity School.
