Week 6 – “Rahab Says Hello to Judith” Dube

November 3, 2007

Feminist interpretations of, well anything really, are pretty new to me, so it’s sometimes difficult to get my mind around these challenging interpretations of scripture. So a postcolonial and feminist interpretation is definitely a different experience. Most interesting to me is Dube’s vision of the two women as representative of their lands: beautiful, chaste, and loyal Judith of Israel as opposed to beautiful, promiscuous, and deceptive Rahab of Jericho. I’m really just not sure what to make of it yet.
