Eva Mroczek, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at UC Davis, presents her book The Literary Imagination in Jewish Antiquity.

9780190279837Using familiar sources such as the Psalms, Ben Sira, and Jubilees, Eva Mroczek tells an unfamiliar story about sacred writing not bound in a Bible. In listening to the way ancient writers describe their own literature-rife with their own metaphors and narratives about writing-The Literary Imagination in Jewish Antiquity also argues for greater suppleness in our own scholarly imagination, no longer bound by modern canonical and bibliographic assumptions.

 

About Book Chats: The UC Davis Humanities Institute presents a lunchtime series celebrating the intellectual and artistic endeavors of UC Davis faculty. Book Chats feature a faculty member presenting a recently completed publication, performance, or recording. Through the series we aim to highlight the breadth and depth of our extraordinary collective work.
