Presented as part of the Theology in the City 2019 conference.
Our invited guest Adele Reinhartz is a professor at the University of Ottawa in the Department of Classics and Religious Studies. She has two areas of research: biblical studies, and religion and film. She is presently working on a project on religion — especially the pushback against Catholicism and ambivalence towards the "other" — in Quebecois cinema. She is a prolific writer and the vice president of the Society of Biblical Literature.
Her lecture will focus on biblical figures of resilience and touch parts of the Quebecois cinema.
