Dr. Dube is a feminist postcolonial biblical scholar and has been doing a great deal of work on biblical interpretation in the age of HIV/AIDS, particularly in the African context. She is a member of the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians and holds a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University. She has taught at Scripps College and the University of Botswana and is the author, editor, and coeditor of many works including:
Postcolonial Feminist Interpretation of the Bible

This is a unique opportunity. Dr. Dube has come all the way from Botswana and we were able --at the last minute-- to get some time with her between her lectures at Shaw University and Wake Forest University.
