Exhibiting the Sacred: Religion, Race, and Representation

Dec 7, 2017
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Fleming Museum 204 (Marble Court)

Vicki Brennan, UVM Professor of Religion and Director of UVM's African Studies Program; and Students.

How are sacred objects transformed when they enter the museum? What impact does the display of religious objects have on viewers, and how do they make sense of such objects? Professor Vicki Brennan and students from her Fall 2017 course "Exhibiting the Sacred" address these questions as they present their ethnographic research documenting the reception of the Spirited Things exhibition at the Fleming Museum.
