Seminar Series: “Gestating Difference: Jews, Non-Jews, and Abortion in the Babylonian Talmud”
Hosted By: Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI)
Dr. Sara Ronis explores fetal personhood in the rabbinic world of late antiquity. Using close readings of primary texts from Late Antiquity together with analyses informed by insights from anthropology, critical animal studies, post-human studies, ethics, and legal history, this project explores how the rabbis use the fetus to think about what it means to be a living being, a human, and a Jew and offers a new way to think about how personhood is socially mediated and culturally constructed.
