Keith Stone earned his PhD in 2013, in Harvard University’s Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations (Hebrew Bible). His dissertation has been published as Singing Moses’s Song: A Performance-Critical Analysis of Deuteronomy’s Song of Moses (Boston: Ilex, 2016). Within ancient Israelite literature, religion, and history, his research focuses on the dynamics of performing in traditional settings, particularly within traditions linked to founders. Among his secondary interests are Northwest Semitic languages and inscriptions, land ideology, the psychology of abuse and trauma in biblical texts, and ancient Greek myth and hero cult.
