    Abstract : As a point of departure, this thesis is motivated by the big changes which have taken place in most Western European countries since the 1970s, with an increase in female labour market participation and, to some extent, men’s increased share of the domestic work. There is also a debate as to whether France, having a fairly extensive family support,should be categorised as closer to the Scandinavian countries or together with countries with more restrictive family policy such as Italy and Germany, and thus belonging to the conservative regime cluster as defined by Gösta Esping-Andersen.

  3. 3. Portrait of a Villain: Laban the Aramean in Rabbinic Literature

    University dissertation from Peeters Publishers

    Author : Karin Zetterholm; [2001]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Världsreligioner ej kristendom ; Bibelvetenskap; Bible; Jacob; literary theory; deceiver; Aramean; Laban; narrative analysis; narrative expansion; targum; midrash; ideology; intertextuality; interpretation; hermeneutics; literature criticism; General and comparative literature; Non-Christian religions; Allmän och jämförande litteratur; litteraturkritik; litteraturteori;

    Abstract : This study attempts to answer the question of why Laban the Aramean, a rather harmless character as presented in the biblical text, is generally portrayed in rabbinic literature as a major enemy of Jacob and Israel. It is argued that the portrait of Laban as a villain developed as a result of rabbinic hermeneutics, and that the characteristics which are attributed to him in rabbinic literature were not arbitrarily chosen due to a particular interest in his person or a wish to endow him with a certain set of negative characteristics, but rather derive from interaction between the rabbis and the biblical text in a process where the rabbis filled in the gaps that they perceived in the biblical text and explained inconsistencies with material provided by the Bible itself and by material taken from their ideological code.
