Our course goal will not be that of spiritual formation or exploration, but rather to examine the cultural importance of biblical texts in a literary context. We will focus on the Bible as a collection of different genres—poetic, historical, mythological, biographical, prophetic—and as a major influence on other artistic works in the Western world and the way gendered depictions stem from, uphold, and challenge Biblical texts.

This course covers the history of what it means to study literature, from the early 20th-century Formalists to contemporary trends in the field of literary studies. Part of the heritage of literary studies is the importance of Feminism to the interpretation of literature. Furthermore, contemporary trends, such as LGBTQ+-based literary analysis, further help us to explore and understand great works of literature. We will read selections from some of the world's foremost literary critics in all fields as well as works of literature that explore gender across the spectrum.
