Abstract and Keywords

This essay investigates the challenges of feminist biblical scholarship within “the neoliberal university.” After a short introduction to “neoliberalism,” which is based on Manfred B. Steger’s and Ravi K. Roy’s description of neoliberalism as an ideology, a mode of governance, and a policy package, the essay addresses the various tensions between the values central to feminism and the values constitutive of the neoliberal university. The essay shows that some feminist Bible scholars have begun reflecting on the impact of neoliberalism on feminist biblical studies. The essay indicates the direction for further work, including feminist reception history and empirical studies on the conditions for feminist biblical scholarship in “the neoliberal university.”

Keywords: neoliberalism, the neoliberal university, the Bologna process, critical university studies, Europe, knowledge production, power
