Dorie Mansen

Dorie Mansen is a PhD graduate of Judaic Studies (Hebrew Bible) under the direction of Dr. Kathe P. Darr. Her dissertation (“Desecrated Covenant, Deprived Burial: Threats of Non-Burial in the Hebrew Bible”) focused on non-burial and post-mortem abuse in the Hebrew Bible. The project examines the rhetorical purpose of references to non-burial and the implications of post-mortem abuse in ancient Israelite death and burial ideology. Dorie’s current research interests include diversity of religious practice in ancient Israel, nature-oriented imagery in biblical literature, identity construction in religious literature, and the intersection of political and religious dialogue in the exilic period. Dorie holds a MTS in Hebrew Bible from Boston University School of Theology, and a BA in Theology from Boston College. In 2012, Dorie received the Edwin S. and Ruth M. White Prize and Angela J. and James J. Rallis Memorial Award from the Boston University Center for the Humanities. Dorie currently teaches Biblical Hebrew at Boston University, and previously has taught at Bangor Theological Seminary in Portland, ME.
