Rosamond Rodman

Jan 2004

Oh, those red boots. Oh, that pumpkin hair. Oh, her references to "inhaling." Rosamond comprises everything you'd ever imagine in a religion Ph.D. student teaching CC and more. At first coming off as a slightly disaffected, yogaed-out Seattle expat, she impresses with her knowledge of the Bible and of her keen sense of chronology, influence and intertextual relevance. Sure, she may seem like a relativist, and sure it is annoying as hell when she won't let you use any gender-specific terms ("craftsmanship," "statesman"), but she is accessible, friendly, unpredictable and oh- so-fashionable. A genuinely good person and an extrememly intelligent woman, Rosamond doesn't disappoint.
