About this sabbatical grant for researchers

This book maps the field of cultural studies both outside and within the discipline of New Testament studies to foreground an intercontextual approach to biblical texts. Such intercontextual approach interprets New Testament texts in light of contemporary global debates (queer sexuality, mass incarceration, torture, imperial violence, HIV crisis), using artistic representations to reflect on contemporary pressing issues and biblical topics.
