Performance criticism is central to my exploration of the listeners' experience of the recitation of Luke-Acts in the late first century, which is one aspect relevant to my dissertation.

I am doing initial research into PhD topics. A possible advisor at Aberdeen suggested i look into this emerging area and how it might connect with my interest in liturgical theology and how it might inform or be informed by experiential learning theory.

I have some experience in Biblical Storytelling over the years.  I also have a Master's Degree from Trinity International University and I am now going back to school to pursue my DrMin in preaching.  I recently ran across your organization While working on a paper for my Acts/Romans class I just too this summer.  I am wondering what seminaries offer a DrMin in Biblical Criticism.  I am thinking this may be a better fit for me than just preaching.  If someone can help me with that I would greatly appreciate it.  I currently live in Atlanta, GA

I am interested in the Bible and all the different discourses in which these texts are involved. By use of theories from Gender Studies and Cultural Studies my research emphasize the ongoing dynamics and complex processes between ancient texts and meaning production today. In my research I have focused on how New Testament texts can be placed in the historical context in which they were produced (Jewish, Greco-Roman), to see how early Christian literature interact with other ideas and practices in antiquity.

My background is in performance. I am interested in the creative dynamic which brings the impact of immediate experience to utterance. I am presently preparing a work- "Vital Performance and Generative Thinking- which draws on my performance experience and  admiration for shamanic performance.  I have a very undeveloped interest in the Apocalypse as performance.

As a certified lay speaker in the UM church, I am exploring the possibility of starting a biblical storytelling ministry. I have told biblical stories in the past, from the text and in first-person narrative, and feel the urge to have a more defined ministry.

I started to write about the Bible as Theatre in the mid 1970s.

In 1996 it was Tel Aviv University's turn to host the yearly International Federation (of) Theatre Research conference. I proposed the title Theatre and Holy Script, and later edited the book by the same name (sussex Academic Press 1999), a number of studies in the field. However, and to me not less important, A Bible and Theatre Desert workshop.
