Reading the Resisting Woman as “Other” with Dr. Shira D Epstein
Hosted By: Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS)
This session is generously sponsored by Diane Troderman; Lori and Michael Gilman; and Jane and Rabbi Jerome M. Epstein in honor of Dean Shira D. Epstein.
Who has the right to anger? When is defiance cast as positive in our texts and when is it silenced? We will explore the Vashti narrative through the lens of power dynamics, status shifts, performing of gendered emotions, and as an example of reading the resisting woman as “Other.”
