Rebecca Epstein-Levi is the Mellon assistant professor of Jewish Studies and Gender and Sexuality Studies at Vanderbilt University. She’s an expert on Jewish sexual ethics, and is working on a book project on sex, risk, and rabbinic text. She has written for The Revealer, Disability Acts, Alma, Religion Dispatches, Feminist Studies in Religion, the Jewish Theological Seminary’s newsletter Gleanings, StyleWise Blog, and State of Formation. In her copious free time, she enjoys cooking unnecessarily complicated meals, sharpening her overly large collection of kitchen knives, and hanging around (and just maybe writing for) her smallish corner of fandom.

You can follow her on Twitter @RJELevi, where she spends half her time tweeting about her work (keep an eye out for her #LectureThreads for her courses!) and the other half of her time split between tweeting about neurodivergence, her cats, Faintly Macabre and Chroma the Great, food, and screaming into the void.
