Abstract

Polyvisuality is a mode of reading biblical narrative that can develop previous ways of reading the text as polyphonic. In this thesis, narrative polyvisuality produces a postcolonial feminist reading of selected Genesis narratives. The politics of Israelite identity is discussed in terms of seeing and being seen by multiple gazes.
