Biography

Katherine joined the school of Divinity, History, Philosophy & Art History in September 2017 as the Kirby Laing Postdoctoral Fellow in New Testament Studies. In August 2019 she became Lecturer in New Testament. Before moving to Aberdeen, between 2015-2017, she worked with Prof David Horrell at the University of Exeter as a Postdoctoral Research Associate on his AHRC (UK) funded project entitled ‘Ethnicity, Race, and Religion in Early Christian and Jewish Identities: A Critical Examination of Ancient Sources and Modern Scholarship’. Katherine gained her PhD in 2016 from Durham University under the supervision of Prof John Barclay. Her AHRC (UK) funded thesis utilised ancient Greco-Roman philosophy and rhetoric along with developments in the field of modern emotion studies to explore the role of emotions in the rhetorical discourse of 1 Peter. It has been published by Cambridge University Press as The Role of Emotion in 1 Peter.
