UM Frankel Center Event: Nyasha Junior

September 12 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Cost: Free

The Expulsion of Hagar

Nyasha Junior, Temple University

In the book of Genesis, Hagar is an Egyptian, an enslaved woman, a surrogate, a wife, and a mother. As the wife of Abraham and the mother of Ishmael, she is a recognized figure in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. At the request of Sarah, Abraham’s first wife and mother of Isaac, Abraham expels Hagar and Ishmael from his household. In this lecture, Nyasha Junior surveys how different religious and cultural traditions have understood Sarah’s motivations and actions. The lecture is based on Dr. Junior’s recent book Reimagining Hagar: Blackness and the Bible (Oxford University Press, 2019). Join us and follow the conversation on Twitter at #ReHagar.
