Alan Levenson, a Jewish intellectual history professor at the University of Oklahoma, will deliver the lectures under a theme titled Joseph in Scripture and Tradition: Writing Biblical Biography.

Levenson has written extensively on the Jewish experience for scholarly and popular audiences. He is the author of three books and many articles and is considered a leading authority on the modern Jewish experience.
