Amy Balogh comes to Colorado College as a Visiting Professor for the 2013-14 academic year. She is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Biblical Interpretation - Hebrew Bible at the University of Denver and Iliff School of Theology, Joint Doctoral Program. Amy’s forthcoming dissertation, Circumcising the Mouth of Moses: The Idolatrous Function of God’s Mouthpiece in Ancient Israel, explores the intersection of ritual, material culture, ancient popular religion, and biblical narrative. She also comes to Colorado College with extensive experience in archaeology, historical and archaeological conservation, and ancient Semitic languages.
