I completed a BA (Hons) in Theology and an MA in Biblical Studies at the University of Exeter. At undergraduate level I largely concentrated on biblical studies related modules. My BA dissertation considered the biblical writers use of women as a literary device in the power plays between King Saul and King David in the Deuteronomistic History. My MA thesis addressed the motif of tearing clothing in the Hebrew Bible from a literary and anthropological approach. I have received AHRC funding to undertake a PhD in Theology and Religion, continuing my MA research into the area of clothing in the Hebrew Bible from a literary and anthropological approach.
