Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza
This course is a basic introduction to how we make meaning when reading the Bible. We will explore the different paradigms of interpretation which scholars have developed and explore their meaning-making capacities in terms of an ethics of interpretation. Special attention will be given to new approaches such as "Signifying Scriptures," "Scriptural Reasoning," or "Bibliodrama." The course process seeks to embody a democratic ethos of study and deliberation, of knowledge and socio-cultural religious location. Reflection papers, group-discussions, and working with texts provide opportunities for such collaboration. Note: Course has additional hour to be arranged.
