Name: Denison: 'Reading Revelation Queerly'
Date: April 11, 2017
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
The Goodspeed Lecture welcomes Lynn R. Huber, associate professor and chair of religious studies at Elon University, presenting “Virgins, Beasts and the Great Whore: Reading Revelation Queerly.” Situated on the margins of the Christian biblical canon, the Book of Revelation is arguably a queer text. A self-described revealing or coming-out, the text revels in the hybrid and the over-the-top, toying with gender crossings and camp theatrics. In this talk, Huber explores the ways in which Revelation engages, replicates, and challenges assumptions about gender and sexuality in its ancient historical context, as a tool for thinking about how the text participates in the contemporary queer imaginary.
