The colluquium will focus upon early Jewish and Christian texts that describe encounters between people from different ethnic groups. These texts will be analyzed in the context of interethnic encounters in the ancient world more broadly, focusing specifically upon Greek and Roman contexts, with special attention to the gendered dynamics in the encounters. Our analysis will pay attention to the differing ways in which gendered performances are managed and contested in interethnic encounters.
