Sex and the Single Prophet: Marital Status in Ezekiel and Jeremiah

Both of these exilic prophetic books include a notice about the non-marital status of these prophets.  Using gender theories, Professor Carvalho will explore how the prophets' marital statuses function to symbolize both the experience of the Israelite community in exile and the God who has orchestrated such a fate.
