Reading the Resisting Woman as “Other” 

Wednesday, March 2, 12:00–1:00 p.m. ET

Learn with JTS at the Limmud eFestival this year!

Who has the right to anger? When is defiance cast as positive in our texts, and when is it silenced? Join Dr. Shira D. Epstein, dean of the William Davidson School and assistant professor of Jewish education, to explore the Vashti narrative through the lens of power dynamics, status shifts, performing of gendered emotions, and as an example of reading the resisting woman as “Other”. 

Part of the Limmud eFestival, a week-long celebration of Jewish ideas scheduled for February 27–March 3, 2022.
