Dead Sea Scroll Research at Oklahoma City University: A Four-Year, Undergraduate-Faculty Collaborative Adventure
Join us on Thursday, November 3 at noon for a presentation by our OCU Dead Sea Scroll research team, whose work has just been published. Our student-faculty group, including Allison Bevers, Kathryn Hirsch, Leigh Smith, Daniel Ethan Watt, and Dr. Lisa M. Wolfe finally can describe the exciting findings of our work on a fragment of Psalm 11 from the Museum of the Bible Collection. A recently-published book contains the OCU team’s conclusions about this artifact, along with a chapter by the group’s faculty leader on the process of research as a means of teaching.
Book Title: Dead Sea Scrolls Fragments in the Museum Collection; Editors: Emanuel Tov, Kipp Davis and Robert Duke
Contributions by OCU Team: “Procedure Followed by the Museum of the Bible Scholars Teams: Manuscript Research as Pedagogy,” Lisa M. Wolfe; “Psalm 11:1–4 (Inv. MOTB.SCR.000121),” Lisa M. Wolfe; Allison Bevers; Kathryn Hirsch; Leigh Smith and Daniel Ethan Watt
The event will be held in the Watson Lounge, on the Lower Level of the Angie Smith Chapel at OCU from 12-1.
