James Hoke
Student, Biblical Studies & Early Christianity
“I hold a M.Div. degree from the University of Chicago and a B.A. from Furman University. My research at Drew focuses on the intersections of queer and feminist theories in and around Paul’s letters. I am also an avid student/teacher of ancient Greek and studies ways of teaching Greek as a “living language.” I have presented multiple papers at the Society of Biblical Literature, and facilitated mentoring sessions for the national SBL’s “non-traditional” hermeneutics coalition.”

Minenhle Nomalungelo Khumalo
Student, Biblical Studies & Early Christianity
“I earned a Bachelor in Theology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa where I focused on oral histories of HIV/AIDS in churches, hospitals, and communities. My master’s thesis, “Hagar, Sarah and the Abrahamic Religions: Exploring their Postcoloniality and Polygamous Identities,” prepared me for my current reading of the Hebrew Bible in relation to Africa and its diaspora(s). I am able to make connections between my field work and my research because of the kind of scholarship I am now exposed to at Drew.”
