  • The Pope, Peru and Paris - ZSR Library Lecture Series

    Thursday, March 17, 2016, 4:00PM
    ZSR Library Auditorium 404

    Justin Catanoso will focus on his journalism this summer in Rome and across Peru, as he reported on the Laudato Si, Pope Francis' encyclical, or teaching document, on environmental protection, global warming, and oppression of the poor. He will provide insights from his reporting from the pope's native region and how the encyclical is being received. He will illustrate his talk with stories from high up in the Andes, where mining is prevalent, to the coastal farm valleys under threat from copper mining. These stories will link outcomes from the all-important UN Climate summit in Paris and whether Francis had the impact he desired. Here is a preview of his lecture: http://pulitzercenter.org/education/peru-religion-environment-pope-encyclical Justin Catanoso is Associate Professor and Director of the Journalism Program at Wake Forest University. His work has been featured in The New York Times, BusinessWeek, Los Angeles Times, Houston Chronicle, Catholic Digest and on National Public Radio.

  • Feeling My Neighbor's Faith: Aesthetics and Hindu-Christian Encounter - ZSR Library Lecture Series

    Wednesday, March 23, 2016, 4:00PM
    ZSR Library Auditorium 404

    Encounter between other faith traditions can evoke strong aesthetic reactions, both positive and negative. At the same time, the intensity and meaningfulness of aesthetic experience have often been described in theological terms. Michelle Voss Roberts, a Christian theologian, brings together these insights in her study of Hindu traditions. In this lecture on her award-winning book, she will discuss how Hindu theological aesthetics can illuminate the role of art and emotion in interfaith understanding. Tastes of the Divine: Hindu and Christian Theologies of Emotion (Fordham University Press, 2013) is this year's winner of the American Academy of Religion's Award for Excellence in the Study of Religion: Constructive-Reflective Studies. Dr. Michelle Voss Roberts is Associate Professor of Theology at Wake Forest University School of Divinity.

  • The Printer's Art and the Conservator's Hand: Restoration of Wake Forest's Nuremberg Chronicle - ZSR Library Lecture Series

    Tuesday, April 5, 2016, 4:00PM
    ZSR Library Auditorium 404

    The book popularly known as the Nuremberg Chronicle represents a pinnacle of achievement for 15th century printing. Published by Anton Koberger in 1493--less than fifty years after Johannes Gutenberg’s first successful experiments with moveable type-- the Nuremberg Chronicle integrated printed text and woodcut illustrations with a level of sophistication previously unknown in the new art of printing. ZSR Special Collections & Archives holds two copies of this significant work. One of them, donated by author and composer Dr. Edwin Stringfellow in 1957, had been rebound in the 18th century and was in urgent need of repair. In 2015, Etherington Conservation Services (located in Browns Summit, NC) completed an in-depth conservation treatment of this valued volume. The restored book will be on display at this Library Lecture event. Rare Books Curator Megan Mulder will discuss the history and significance of the Nuremberg Chronicle, and Preservation Librarian Craig Fansler, will describe the work undertaken to preserve Wake Forest’s copy. Please join us for an up-close look at this important artifact of Renaissance printing!
