I work in an area of WBT called Vernacular Media Services. We strategize with language teams to provide culturally appropriate media alternatives. I am also in a doctorate program through Gordon-Conwell theological Seminary doing a thesis on culture/leadership/orality. I am interested in learning all I can to help our language teams translate the Word in a way that can be engaged by oral communicators.

My dissertation includes an exploration of the ways in wich the Gospel of Matthew may have been performed in its original setting -- as a school text? in a proto-rabbinic context? as a tool for reproducing a certain kind of scriptural literacy? as all of the above?

As a practical theologian with a strong interest in Biblical studies, I want to shed light on the dynamics of Christian formation by comparing the practices of textual expertise in some of the earliest Christian communities ('the scribe who is well trained for the Kingdom of Heaven') with the practices of Christian textual experts today (specifically, the pedagogies of critical religious educators in faith-based Catholic high schools).

Formally accepted into UNISA for my DLitt - I am planning to do a performance critical analysis of the theme of offense in Mark's Gospel. My masters thesis focused on a narrative critical analysis of the theme of obduracy in Mark's Gospel.

Performance and Orality criticism is a new field for me and so I need to engage in conversation and scholarly works on this field of Biblical interpretation.
