When, where, how and for what purpose were the categories of foreignness and gender connected and activated in literary tradition? In this volume of papers read during three workshops held in Leipzig (2016), Jerusalem (2017), and Vienna (2018), international scholars from different disciplines and methodological approaches explore gender-specific constructions of foreignness/strangeness in the Old Testament, Egypt, and Mesopotamia from their particular perspectives.
