Julián A. González Holguín
Associate Professor of Old Testament
As a biblical scholar and educator, I seek to connect the practice of biblical interpretation with the issues of social justice, migration, and violence. I see the classroom as a creative and liberating space where a learning community engages the biblical text and the world. I teach about using critical perspectives to understand the role of readers in the interpretation of religious traditions and the permutation of religious views into political frameworks to understand the other in the contemporary world of nation-states, increasing socio-economic crises, and environmental degradation.
