First people, minority reading: Reading Jonah, from Oceania

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


In this chapter I, a foreigner to Australia, the nation of several countries of Aborigines, invite myself to the conversation on 'minority biblical criticism' (Bailey et al., 2009) with a reading of Jonah that privileges the First people, the people of the land, the people of Nineveh. I read Jonah in solidarity with first peoples, their faces, tongues, ways and interests, from Nineveh, and from Oceania.
