Karin Neutel is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Faculty of Theology (University of Oslo). She has published A Cosmopolitan Ideal: Paul’s Declaration “Neither Jew nor Greek, neither Slave nor Free, nor Male and Female” in the Context of First-Century Thought (2015). Her current project analyses recent circumcision debates in both Europe and the US and examines how references to Paul are used by those involved in public discussions surrounding the practice and legitimacy of male circumcision.

Description

In debates on the issue of the circumcision of boys, some people argue that the practice is a violation of the freedom of religion. This article analyses this argument from an intersectional perspective, and shows how it relies on particular assumptions about masculinity and religion.
