Project Abstract

My project on Women, Gender, and Sexuality in Ancient Jewish Visual and Material Culture explores how women, gender, and sexuality shaped a distinctive Jewish visual and material culture during the Roman and Byzantine periods.Various forms of representation, artifacts and structural remains will be examined in light of literary evidence, primarily Talmudic and other contemporary sources.My goal for this research period will be (1) to map the project's conceptual and geographic boundaries and (2) to complete a draft of the first two chapters, one of which will deal with various aspects of "social skin" and the other with different issues related to "sacred space".
