Dr. Gale Yee joined the EDS faculty in 1998, after many years at the University of St. Thomas (St. Paul, MN), as a Professor of Hebrew Bible and Director of Women’s Studies. Although grounded in traditional historical critical methods, she enjoys applying the newer methodologies and approaches to the study of the biblical text, such as postcolonial criticism, ideological criticism, and cultural criticism. Professor Yee also explores feminist theory and Asian American Studies to enhance her interpretations of the Bible. She is particularly active in the Society of Biblical Literature as general editor of Semeia Studies. The author of several books and articles, Professor Yee’s current book project is Class Acts: Marginalization in Ancient Israel, which investigates Israel’s lower and destitute classes: poor, widow, orphan, corvée laborer, male and female slave. She also researches the sexual depiction of Hebrew Bible women in art. Professor Yee earned her BA and MA at Loyola University of Chicago, and her PhD at University of St. Michael’s College (Toronto).
