BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Meverden is the Writing Center Director and Visiting Associate Professor of New Testament.

She is a graduate of Union Theological Seminary’s Ph.D. program in Biblical Studies—New Testament with a minor in Hebrew Bible. Her research involves the intertextual relationship between the New Testament and Hebrew Bible, visual exegesis—the reading of images with texts, and intersectionality in the Bible with a specific focus on power, ecology, and access.

Dr. Meverden founded and continues to direct the Writing Center at Union Theological Seminary. She teaches a number of writing courses at Union Theological Seminary that focus on the holistic nature of empowered graduate writing and meets with students weekly at the Writing Center. She has a passion for helping students overcome writer’s anxiety and strives to inspire students to thrive in their academic performance.

Her first book, Grasping for Power from the Tree of Life: A Visual Reading of Revelation 22, a forthcoming publication with Fortress Press, focuses on the intersection of imperial visual imagery and the text image of the Tree of Life in Revelation 22.
