Biblical Hagar in Black and White: Event with Nyasha Junior
Hagar is known as the wife of Abraham and the mother of Ishmael within Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. While many biblical characters are depicted as White Europeans within Western art and literature, some interpreters have treated Hagar as a Black woman. Drawing on her book Reimagining Hagar: Blackness and Bible (Oxford University Press, 2019), Dr. Junior will share a rich tradition of representations of biblical Hagar and discuss how contemporary notions of race affect how we read scripture.

Event will be held online, Wednesday, October 28, 2020 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM (CT)
