Jeremy Steinberg is a third-year student in Ancient Mediterranean Religions. His research interests, which he situates at the junction of Religious Studies and Classics, focus on Jewish literature of the late Hellenistic and early Imperial periods (a category in which he includes texts traditionally studied under the umbrella of Early Christianity). He is interested in conceptualizations of literature and discourse about literary composition as presented in works that circulated among Jews living under Greek and Roman rule. He is also interested in ancient formulations of Jewish identity, particularly in the western Diaspora.
