About Elaine James

Elaine James studies the literature of the Hebrew Bible, examining its significance in its ancient context and its legacy for the contemporary world.

She also teaches Women and the Bible, Theological Questions, and several courses for the CORE curriculum. She serves as Vice-President of the Society of Biblical Literature's Upper-Midwestern Region.
