Details

Semeia is an experimental journal devoted to the exploration of new and emergent areas and methods of biblical criticism. Studies employing the methods, models, and findings of linguistics, folklore studies, contemporary literary criticism, structuralism, social anthropology, and other such disciplines and approaches, are invited. Although experimental in both form and content, Semeia proposes to publish work that reflects a well defined methodology that is appropriate to the material being interpreted.

His current teaching and research interests focus upon the socio-cultural history, social psychology, anthropology, performativity, and politics of “scriptures†in society and culture.

He uses the complex engagements of such, especially on the part of subaltern peoples, as analytical wedge for ongoing theorizing and comparative research.
