About the Text, Interpretation and Imagination (2022) course
In this module, students have the opportunity to examine the role that stories and images from the Bible play in our Western cultural imagination. We consider how our own, and other people’s, cultural presuppositions play into how we read biblical texts, as well as thinking about how the texts themselves challenge these presuppositions.
Students will compare biblical texts with other types of text to ask questions like ‘what makes a text sacred?’, as well as being encouraged to creatively and critically interpret the biblical texts themselves.
This is a great opportunity to delve into biblical hermeneutics from creative and critical perspectives.
This is a postgraduate course open to ‘auditors’ e.g. those not enrolled for academic credit.
