What if biblical scholars traveled to the Antipodes for an international conference instead of to Europe or North America? The essays in this volume, originally written for such a conference, explore the implications for biblical studies of such a change in direction. In fact, they travel in a host of different directions, exploring the alternative journeys and places of biblical studies, developing connections in the rhizomatic fashion (as delineated famously by Deleuze and Guattari). The vehicles used in such travel include postcolonialism, feminism, Marxism, gay theory, semiotics, political theory and poststructuralism.Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement series, Volume 382.
