Brown Bag Lunch Discussion Series
Scriptures are in different respects and to different degrees embedded within most historical and contemporary social orders. Comprehending any society must include fathoming what it understands as its scriptures and how these scriptures work in the society.
The Brown Bag Lunch Discussion Series brings together graduate students and faculty from various disciplines to discuss topics and issues related to the invention and engagement of scriptures in society and culture. The sessions take place on selected Thursdays from 12:00 to 1:00 in the IAC Library (831 N. Dartmouth Ave, Claremont). All are welcome.
