The Legacy of Abraham

Utilizing anthropological training and research on gender and theories of procreation, this project critically analyzes the story of Abraham, especially the 'sacrifice' story and engage critically with Freud's Moses and Monotheism. The intent is to open up new ground for thinking about the relationship between gender, cosmology and the foundations of patriarchy.
