Jealousy and Gender in Ancient Jewish Law
Hosted By: Haberman Institute
How many of us have heard that women are more sensitive than men? Or been told that men are more likely than women to have anger issues? Just as we are all familiar with gendered presumptions about emotion in contemporary society, Jews in antiquity also had their own ideas about the relationship between gender and emotion!
Join the Haberman Institute to trace the development of laws about suspected adultery from the Bible through the Babylonian Talmud. See how changing beliefs about jealousy contributed to shaping the way these laws were reinterpreted, and we will consider how powerful ideas about gender and emotion can be in shaping our cultural world.
