Flyer: Goodman Lecture_2016
The featured speaker at the 2016 Goodman Lecture will be Dr. Hanne Loeland Levinson. Dr. Levinson is an assistant professor in the Department of Classical and Near Eastern Studies at the University of Minnesota. A member of the Center of Jewish Studies at the U of M, Dr. Levinson’s research centers on the academic study of the Hebrew Bible with a focus on gender studies, prophetic literature, and narratives around death and death wishes.
Her first book, Silent or Salient Gender? The Interpretation of Gendered God-Language in the Hebrew Bible, Exemplified in Isaiah 42, 46 and 49 (Mohr Siebeck, 2008), received the John Templeton Award for Theological Promise in 2008. Currently, she is working on a book with the working title: Wishing for Death or Fighting for Life: Death Wishes in the Hebrew Bible. She has also taught at the MF Norwegian School of Theology in Oslo, Norway, and has been a visiting scholar at institutions in Israel, South Africa and the U.S.
She fell in love with the literature and ideas of the Hebrew Bible as an undergraduate and continues to be fascinated by these texts in her work as a teacher and scholar of the Hebrew Bible. She is concerned about reading the texts in light of their literary and historical context, but is also interested in the dialogue between contemporary questions and the biblical texts.

Research at the U of MN linking student success to library use is in the spotlight again, this time on Boopsie for this good news report from the Association of College and Research Libraries.
Digital resources are great, of course, and we have subject specific pages too – but don’t dismiss a visit to your library. There are great print resources in each one, and friendly helpful staff – and you can find a coffee shop in Walter and Wilson too.
Excerpt from the entry in Boopsie:
“As college libraries foster accessibility and student engagement, they contribute to the success of their students through increased graduation rates, increased retention rates, and higher GPAs. When college libraries contribute to student success, they increase institutional prestige while preparing future leaders to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s world.”
