Gary A. Rendsburg, chair of Jewish Studies at Rutgers University, will be featured at two lectures at the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at Brigham Young University in March.

Rendsburg will address “Unlikely Heroes: Women as Israel” for a Global Awareness lecture Wednesday, March 7, at noon. He will then present an Ancient Near Eastern Studies lecture, “Light from Egypt on the Exodus Story,” Thursday, March 8, at 11 a.m. Both addresses will take place in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Admission to both lectures is free, and the public is welcome to attend.

He is a renowned author, with such publications as “Israelian Hebrew in the Book of Kings” and “The Bible and the Ancient Near East,” both widely recognized within his field.
