Vanderbilt History Seminar 2014-2015

 

 yearlong poster

 

The theme this year is performance. We have chosen it because it enables us to speak to a number of themes and periods, through notions of ritual performance, in both politics and religion, the performance of various gender and social roles, politics as forms of spectacle and performance, not to mention performance more conventionally defined in terms of the theatre, preaching, and music. our intention is to address as wide a range of historical analytics- political, religious,social, cultural- and periods as possible while retaining a common core of concerns, questions, and interpretative approaches so as to ensure a vibrant conversation throughout the year.
