2. SPEAKER: DR. NICOLE RUANE, "Pigs and Paternity: Reproductive and Genealogical Symbolism in Biblical Ritual Law."

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3

6:00 P.M.

Art Exhibit Room, 3rd Floor Macmillan

Nicole J. Ruane is Visiting Assistant Professor of Religion at Syracuse University. She has taught at Northeastern University and Union Theological Seminary. Her first book, due out in June 2013, is Sacrifice and Gender in Biblical Law (Cambridge University Press).

"Pigs and Paternity: Reproductive and Genealogical Symbolism in Biblical Ritual Law."

Taking as its starting point Levi-Strauss’ idea that “animals are good to eat and good to think,” this paper argues that the biblical prohibition on pork is related to larger social ideas about reproduction, lineage and gender that are played out in the biblical sacrificial and cultic systems. Instead of searching for the origin of the prohibition – which could never be fully ascertained — this paper shows that pigs are incompatible with the biblical practice of offering the firstborn of domesticated animals, a rite that is intricately related to biblical concepts of inheritance and family line.

The Healing Muse is the literary journal of SUNY Upstate Medical University?s Center for Bioethics and Humanities, which publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art work, and photography. The evening will feature a conversation on the process of writing, as individuals read about topics relating to medicine, illness, healing, disability, and everything in between.

The event is free and open to the public. Coffee and complimentary refreshments will be offered, and a cash bar will be available during the readings and conversation.

There is a display of issues of The Healing Muse in the Library, and copies will be available for sale at the reading.
