Couple of nifty talks:

Next week there will be two talks that should interest many of you with interests in Religion and Violence and/or Mediterranean Religions:


Hugh Urban:
The Menstruating Goddess: Ritual Violence and Sexual Transgression in the Worship of Mother Goddess Kamakhya

(I believe this will include footage of Vedic sacrifices that Hugh took while in India earlier this year; it should interest anyone who works on sacrifice)

Wednesday, May 19th, 3:30 PM
in University Hall 347

and

Radcliffe Edmonds III:
Who Are You? Mythic Narrative and Identity in the Orphic Gold Tablets

(the Orphic Gold Tablets give the souls of the dead instructions about to do in the Underworld)

Thursday, May 20th, 3:30 PM
448 University Hall
