This full day academic seminar will take place in Sheffield on the 8th of January 2015 (precise venue still tbc by my co-conspirators James & Michael). The seminar covers a range of radical interpretations of the Bible. Papers will utilize the most revolutionary and scientifically progressive methods in the discipline of biblical studies, like critical theory, Marxist exegesis, anarchist exegesis, radical reception theory and other ideological and political readings. Please let me know if you are planning to attend (either comment below or email me [email protected]auckland.ac.nz) so we have an idea of numbers. The official Twitter hashtag for the seminar is #RIOTBIBLE. Twitter handles of presenters are included below.
