Miri Rubin is a Professor of History at Queen Mary, University of London where her interests cover a wide range of social relations within the predominantly religious cultures of Europe between 1100-1600. She has found anthropological approaches and an understanding of textuality and visual imagery to be invaluable tools for the appreciation of the complex meanings of ritual, gender, power and community life. Some of her most recent work includes Mother of God: a History of the Virgin Mary (2009), Emotion and Devotion. The Meanings of Mary in Medieval Culture (2009), Charisma and Religious Authority (edited with Kate Jansen, 2010), and Medieval Christianity in Practice (edtor, 2009).
Cosponsored by the Department of Theology and the Luann Dummer Center for Women at the University of St. Thomas. Professor Rubin will discuss her recent work on Mary on Monday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Owens Science Hall, room 150, 2115 Summit Ave, St. Paul.
Parking is available at the 21st Avenue ramp and in the 19th Avenue ramp. Reciprocal contract parking is also available for those with contracts on the east bank or on the Saint Paul campus.
