Brittany E. Wilson is Assistant Professor of New Testament at Duke University Divinity School. Brittany’s current book, Unmanly Men: Refigurations of Masculinity in Luke-Acts (Oxford University Press, forthcoming), analyzes key male characters in Luke-Acts in relation to ancient constructions of masculinity and Luke’s emphasis on God’s power. Her next project focuses on portrayals of Jesus’ crucifixion across the fourfold Gospel and how these portrayals intersect with Christology and ancient gender norms.

Brittany is a Regional Scholar for the Society of Biblical Literature and a recipient of the Kenneth Willis Clark Award for the Society of Biblical Literature-Southeast. She has published in journals such as The Catholic Biblical Quarterly and is a contributor to the Women’s Bible Commentary, Third Edition (Westminster John Knox, 2012). Brittany is also a John Wesley Fellow and an active layperson in the United Methodist Church.
