Brown Bag Lunch Talk with Dr. Kate Barush

Thursday, February 6th 2020, 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Doug Adams Gallery, 2465 Le Conte Avenue Berkeley, CA 94709

CARe's Brown Bag Lunch Series features presentations by recent CARe Grant recipients. These informal talks are free & open to the public!

Our February talk will be given by Dr. Kathryn Barush, GTU Thomas E. Bertelsen, Jr. Associate Professor of Art History and Religion. Her talk, Singing is Believing: Pilgrimage and the Senses will explore the role of music in translating the pilgrimages of the past into the present. This topic is addressed in Dr. Barush's forthcoming book, Imaging Pilgrimage: Art as Embodied Experience (Bloomsbury Visual Culture). The efforts of the British Pilgrimage Trust to "rewild" ancient pilgrimage song and chant through ritual praxis will be introduced as a case study, followed by plenty of time for discussion!

PLEASE NOTE THE DIFFERENT DATE OF THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6 FOR OUR FIRST TALK OF THE SEMESTER. ALL OTHER TALKS WILL BE GIVEN ON THE FIRST FRIDAY OF THE MONTH.

Despite this being a lunchtime presentation, we kindly ask you NOT to consume any food while inside the art gallery. You may eat your lunch in the adjacent Student Lounge before or after the talk. Thank you very much for your understanding!
