Jesus in the Ruins of Neoliberalism

A meta-critical analysis of historical Jesus and Gospel research with a focus on the ideological contexts of late neoliberalism.

This longer-term project resulted in a number of loosely-related academic publications appearing in various locations. I never got around to completing the book I was writing, and decided to finally abandon it in 2021 to work on other projects in the pipeline.

I took the above photograph when I first moved to Perth in 2017 and discovered this fascinating image down a random alleyway. The street art, entitled "Wake Up to the Stink," was produced by the Melbourne-based artist E.L.K.
