Nominated for Provost's Teaching Award 2011
Research interests are focused on the study of how Judaism emerged against the background of the worldview of the ancient Near East. I have a particular interest in how Second Temple Judaism and the political structures which were based in the temple emerged against the background of how Jewish elites dealt with the challenges of imperial control and this has been the focus of my book which is currently in press. I am also involved in a conference centring on the theme of conditions in Yehud and other regions under Achaemenid rule. This is being co-organised with Dr Diana Edelman of the Department of Biblical Studies in Sheffield. The conference will involve experts from both the fields of Biblical Studies/ Early Judaism and Classics. The conference will be funded by the Centre for Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies and the British Academy.
