What makes Biblical Studies anti-social?
Jane Hart's weekly list of interesting educational links
mentioned Academic Earth
an organization founded to give everyone on earth access to a world class education. It has thousands of video lectures from the world's top scholars. It looks a brilliant resource. The front page includes lecture series from Princetown, MIT and Yale (OK so it is Americano-centric) cool!
The "Subjects" tab lists: Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, English, Entrepreneurship, History, Law, Mathematics, Medicine, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology and Religion so there's something for everyone!
The only entry under "Religion" is Christine Hayes fine series Introduction to the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible)
. And we already know about those lectures... where are all the other Biblical Scholars? What makes Biblical Studies so ungenerous, so unwilling to share?
If your institution has a less "dog in the manger" attitude to teaching about the Bible than my employers do please go to the page about partnering with Academic Earth
, you may earn no cash, but you might raise your reputation and assist people with fewer resources...
