      Dear All,

      I am glad to announce the publication of a new article in
      the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures

      Cynthia R. CHAPMAN, “ ‘Oh that you were like a brother
      to me, one who had nursed at my mother’s breasts.’
      Breast Milk as a Kinship-Forging Substance”

      Abstract: This article builds on the work of anthropologists
      who focus on milk kinship to demonstrate that biblical
      Hebrew narrative understands breast milk as a
      kinship-forging substance. The Bible presents breastfeeding
      as a process through which a mother or wet nurse confers
      upon an infant her own tribal identity and royal or priestly
      status. Breastfeeding narratives in the Bible bolster the
      hero’s royal or priestly credentials and establish his
      insider ethnicity.
