Jennie Grillo teaches courses in Old Testament. In 2015-16 she is on leave from teaching with an ACLS research fellowship. Her current project is a study of the Additions to Daniel in the history of interpretation, for which she also holds a Mellon Fellowship in Critical Bibliography from the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia. Her first book, The Story of Israel in the Book of Qohelet: Ecclesiastes as Cultural Memory, was published by Oxford University Press in 2012 and won a Manfred Lautenschlaeger Award. Her interests include wisdom literature, ideas of idolatry in the Old Testament, and the interactions of early Jewish and early Christian biblical interpretation.
