Biography

Katherine joined the school of Divinity, History and Philosophy in September 2017 as the Kirby Laing Postdoctoral Fellow in New Testament Studies. 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.

  • 1 Peter and the Catholic Epistles
  • Emotion Studies and the New Testament
  • Ancient philosophical ethics (esp. of emotion)
  • Rhetoric and the New Testament

Current Research

During her time as Kirby Laing Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Katherine hopes to extend her work on emotions in the New Testament by invesitgating themes of anger and non-retaliation across a range of NT texts with the aim of uncovering various Early Christian responses to hostility and loss.
