Work-In-Progress: Gene Rogers, “Jesus and the Gender of Blood”

Please join WGS as we host Gene Rogers, as he presents his work-in-progress on “Jesus and the Gender of Blood”. In this work, Rogers discusses why Christians talk about blood so much. Specifically, he looks at the instances of Jesus and one of the women he heals and how they are both defined by their bleeding.

Educated at Princeton, Tübingen, Rome, and Yale, Rogers taught at Yale College and Divinity School, Shaw University Divinity School, St. Anselm College, and, from 1993 to 2005, at the University of Virginia, where for several years he chaired the Program in Theology, Ethics, and Culture.  He has held fellowships or residencies from the Fulbright Commission, the Mellon Foundation, the National Humanities Center, the Lilly Foundation, the Center of Theological Inquiry at Princeton Seminary (twice), the Center for the Study of Religion at Princeton University, Tantur Ecumenical Research Institute in Jerusalem, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Templeton Foundation. He is author or editor of six books and over thirty-five articles and translations. He joined the UNCG faculty in 2005.
