Sacred Histories
Date: October 7, 2016
Time: 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Please join us as Dr. Dell Upton, Professor of Architectural History at UCLA, presents ‘Sacred Histories.’

In the U.S. South, sacred landscapes, in the sense of sites of formally religious events or pilgrimages, are rare, at odds with the dominant evangelical Christian culture of the region. But there are extensive, overlapping, sometimes conflicting, sacred landscapes tied to the region’s historical past. At first glance, the sacred and the historical appear to be at odds – the one enduring and mystical, the other contingent and manifest. This talk will consider the conjunction of the historical and the sacred in individual and collective experience.

Dr. Upton's talk is the keynote address for the Seventh Annual Art History Graduate Student Research Symposium, Sacred Space. Both events are free and open to the public.
