Cory Crawford is assistant professor of Biblical Studies in the Department of Classics and World Religions at Ohio University. After earning his BA from BYU (Linguistics) he received his AM and PhD from the department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University with a dissertation on the historical and iconographic context of the first Jerusalem temple. In 2014–15 he was awarded a Volkswagen/Mellon Fellowship at the Biblisch-Archäologisches Institut at the University of Tübingen, and he has participated in archaeological excavations at Tel Hazor, Israel. He served as associate editor of Studies in the Bible and Antiquity from 2013-2017. His research interests include gender, space, and visuality in the ancient Near East—three of the themes that emerged as part of his doctoral research. He has published in various venues related to Bible and ancient Near East. He is co-editor of a volume under contract with Oxford University Press, provisionally entitled The Bible in Mormonism: A Guide to Scripture in the Latter-day Saint Tradition.
