Joseph A. Marchal teaches introductory religious studies courses, a range of biblical studies courses, as well as more advanced seminars on bodies and religions, and theories for religious studies.  He is particularly passionate about introducing students to the ancient contexts of biblical texts and, then, helping them reflect upon their relevance for more recent cultures (including our own).  This passion extends to his research, focused particularly on the dynamics of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and empire and the audiences of Paul's letters.

Dr. Marchal has published three books and edited two others on these topics, alongside eighteen book chapters, and twelve articles in a wide variety of journals for biblical and religious studies, including: Journal of Biblical Literature, Biblical Interpretation, Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion, Culture and Religion, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, Theology and Sexuality, and Bible and Critical Theory.
