“Art and Papal Politics in Twelfth-Century Rome” is the featured presentation at this Annual Hammer Art History Lecture. Art and architecture were important vehicles of communication for medieval patrons, including popes. In this lecture, Dale Kinney (Eugenia Chase Guild Professor Emeritus in the Humanities and Research Professor, Bryn Mawr College) presents a range of papal images thought to convey political messages, some of which caused international scandals in their own day while others are mentioned only for being pretty.

Kitka Women’s Vocal Ensemble-Wintersongs: San Francisco, CA
Feb 6 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Kitka: Wintersongs

KITKA is a women’s vocal ensemble unlike any other. These sophisticated singers blend a contemporary sensibility with specialized vocal techniques from Eastern Europe that have been distilled over centuries. Using only the pure unaccompanied voice, they create a constantly shifting landscape of sound, pulsing with angular rhythms, where dramatic dynamics leap from delicate stillness to shattering resonance, and seamless unisons explode into lush incomprehensible chords. Wintersongs features material ranging from rousing Slavic folk carols to lush, meditative Eastern Orthodox sacred choral works…. from pre-Christian incantations for the longest night of the year to Medieval Sephardic Chanukah songs to original new pieces inspired by the beauty and mystery of wintertime.

Holy Hero(in)es. Literary Constructions of Heroism in Late Antique and Early Medieval Hagiography
International Conference at Ghent University (Belgium), Thursday 18th to Saturday 20th February 2016.

Confirmed keynote speaker: Prof. dr. Stephanos Efthymiadis (Open University of Cyprus)

The ERC research group Novel Saints (Ghent University) builds on and contributes to a recent trend in scholarship of studying late antique and early medieval hagiography (4th-12th cent.) as literature. We welcome paper proposals for our first, international conference, which will deal with literary constructions of characters as hero(in)es in different types of late antique and early medieval hagiographical narrative (Lives, Martyr Acts, hagiographical romances, etc.). We envisage contributions on hagiography from different linguistic traditions (Latin, Greek, Syriac, Georgian, Coptic, Armenian, Persian and Arabic).

The conference aims to explore definitions of and aspects/concepts relevant to heroism in Christian narrative.

Africa – Photo Jacques Bonneville
Africa is home to the world’s poorest nations, but also has a dozen economies that maintained 7% growth rates over the last decade. Africa is the last major frontier for resource development, while simultaneously struggling with some of the world’s oldest, most corrupt and filthiest oil and mining ventures. While Africa suffers from ethnic and religious violence and poverty, it is blessed with rich and creative cultures and vibrant civil societies. These are only a few of the contradictions and conundrums that will frame the 2016 Camden Conference on the theme of Africa, a massive and often mysterious continent.
