Research Overview

Dr. Greene's research focuses on the relationship between scribes, states, and literary production in the ancient southern Levant. With specialization in Northwest Semitic languages, he utilizes advanced imaging techniques such as Reflectance Transformation Imaging to bring ancient inscriptions to life in new ways, allowing him to reimagine the scribal and literary landscape of Iron Age Israel. He brings the results of this work to bear on the texts contained within the Deuteronomistic History to help investigate Israel's origins and its state formation at the earliest stages of its formation. He also works in conceptual metaphor theory and metaphorical expression within Northwest Semitic literatures. These interests have also lead him to work extensively in Palmyrene Aramaic epigraphy.
