  • Karin Tillberg is the theological secretary for the Service books in the Church of Sweden. She received her PhD in Hebrew Bible Exegesis from Uppsala University, Sweden. In her thesis—The Outsider in Our Midst: A Study of Language and Norms Concerning the “Outsider” in Persian Period Yehud—she analyses inclusion and exclusion as a continuum, with the help of theoretical notions from Bourdieu and Derrida, as manifested in Nehemiah and Trito-Isaiah. Her research interests focus on exegesis and critical theory, political use of the Bible, and liturgical use of the Bible.
