Hidden Perspectives

Bringing the Bible Out of the Closet


Katie Edwards

Admen and Eve

Katie Edwards is Lecturer in the Bible in Contemporary Culture and Society at the University of Sheffield.

Her research specialism is the function, impact and influence of the Bible in contemporary culture and the role of the Bible in the modern world. Her latest book, Admen and Eve:The Bible and Contemporary Advertising, looks at the  portrayal of Eve in post-feminist popular culture and her recent research focuses on intersections of gender, race and class in popular cultural reappropriations of biblical characters/narratives.
