This day-long conference will feature Dean Margaret Mitchell, Ph.D. as the keynote speaker. Dr. Mitchell is the Dean of the University of Chicago Divinity School and a literary historian of ancient Christianity. Her research and teaching span a range of topics in New Testament and early Christian writings up through the end of the 4th century, with a special interest in the Pauline letters, the poetics and politics of ancient biblical interpretation, and the intersection of text, image, and artifact in the fashioning of early Christian culture.

Dean Mitchell is the author of four books: Paul and the Rhetoric of Reconciliation (1991), The Heavenly Trumpet: John Chrysostom and the Art of Pauline Interpretation (2000), The “Belly-Myther” of Endor: Interpretations of 1 Kingdoms 28 in the Early Church (2007), and Paul, the Corinthians and the Birth of Christian Hermeneutics (2010).

Recent articles include “The Poetics and Politics of Christian Baptism in the Abercius Monument” (2011), “The Continuing Problem of Particularity and Universality within the corpus Paulinum: Chrysostom on Romans 16:3″ (2011) and “Peter’s ‘Hypocrisy’ and Paul’s: Two ‘Hypocrites’ at the Foundation of Earliest Christianity?”(2012).
