Speakers and Artists Lecture- "Biblical Women in Pop Culture: An Academic Journey" by Dr. Linda Schearing, Gonzaga University

  • 3/14/2019 7:00 p.m.
Dr. Linda Schearing, Professor of Religious Studies at Gonzaga University, presents this Speakers & Artists lecture entitled: “Biblical Women in Pop Culture: An Academic Journey” Amazingly, the symbols, themes, and characters of biblical stories still play an interesting role today in popular culture. Especially significant is the way that popular culture mediums read, appropriate and reconstruct biblical women’s stories and characters. Join with us as we examine how such usage not only entertains, but often signals interesting messages concerning gender as well. This free lecture is open to the public and begins at 7 p.m. in the Johnston Science Center Auditorium on the Whitworth University Campus.
