The Gendered Palimpsest: Women, Writing, and Representation in Early Christianity
Books and bodies, women and books, and the malleable word and flesh lie thematically at the center of The Gendered Palimpsest, which explores the roles that women played in the production, reproduction, and dissemination of early Christian books, and how the representation of female characters was contested through the medium of writing and copying.
I am absolutely ecstatic to have stumbled into NES via the Arabic program. My involvement with this department has been incredibly rewarding and illuminating, and I can safely say that the professors and students with whom I studied had a profoundly positive impact on both my career and my personality.Emily Koppelman, Class of 2013
