On Wednesday, November 2nd. The Carpenter Initiative on Gender, Sexuality, and Justice is hosting Lynn R. Huber for a public lecture entitled “Reading the Bible from Outside: Introducing Queer Biblical Interpretation.” This event is free and open to the public.

Lynn R. Huber is the Maude Sharpe Powell Professor of Religious Studies at Elon University in Elon, NC. Originally from Portland, Oregon, Huber completed a BA in Philosophy at Northwest Nazarene College in Nampa, Idaho, and an M.Div. and Ph.D. at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Her first two books, “Like a Bride Adorned”: Reading Metaphor in John’s Apocalypse (2007) and Thinking and Seeing with Women in Revelation (2013), explore Revelation’s use of feminine imagery and ways the book invites interpreters to see along with these images. Other publications explore the construction of masculinity in Revelation and LGBT+ and queer interpretations of the book. Among her forthcoming publications are a feminist commentary on Revelation for the Liturgical Press and an introduction to Revelation for the HarperCollins Study Bible. She has also begun a new project introducing and outlining the contours of queer biblical interpretation.
