Dr Suzanna Millar
Teaching Fellow in Hebrew Bible
I joined the University of Edinburgh in July 2018, after 6 months as a Teaching Fellow at the University of Leeds. Before that, I completed my PhD in Hebrew Bible from the University of Cambridge. I focussed on the Book of Proverbs, and was particularly interested in the way that the individual proverbs are open to multiple interpretations and multiple applications.
My current research interests include the Wisdom Literature, particularly the book of Job. I am also very interested in the hermeneutical and ethical questions around the use of the Bible, and in newer interpretive methods. My specific focus has recently been on ecological hermeneutics, and the role of animals in the Hebrew Bible. I co-chair the 'Animals and the Bible' research group for the European Association of Biblical Studies.
