Film: Walking the CaminoBrowning Cinema, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center
7:00 p.m. in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center
Introduced by Anthony Monta, Associate Director of the Nanovic Institute for European Studies.
Walking the Camino is an up-close look at one of humanity’s most time-honored traditions. By following pilgrims from all walks of life as they attempt to cross an entire country on foot with only a backpack, a pair of boots and an open mind, we witness the Camino’s magnetic and miraculous power to change lives. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, each pilgrim throws themselves heart-and-soul into their physical trek to Santiago and, most importantly, their personal journey to themselves. … More +

Exhbit: Natalia Goncharova’s Mystical Images of War, 1914Snite Museum of Art
Natalia Goncharova (Russian,1881–1962), The Christian Host, no. 9 from the series Mystical Images of War [Voina: misticheskie obrazy voiny], 1914, lithograph, 10 x 13 inches. University of Notre Dame, Hesburgh Library, The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections
Natalia Goncharova’s Mystical Images of War, 1914
February 1–March 22, 2015 in the Scholz Family Works on Paper Gallery
This exhibition presents a dramatic portfolio of fourteen lithographs by the Russian avant-garde artist Natalia Goncharova (1881–1962) from the Hesburgh Libraries Collection. Published in the fall of 1914, the lithographs represent one of the earliest and most profound artistic responses to the outbreak of the Great War. They tell an epic and "mystical" story about the eternal struggle between good and evil, destruction and redemption, in which national, traditional, religious, apocalyptic, and contemporary images are intertwined.
Co-sponsored by the Hesburgh Libraries, Snite Museum of Art, and the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, and organized by Russian and East European Studies Librarian Natasha Lyandres, the presentation is part of a year-long series of lectures, courses, performances, exhibitions, and other events commemorating the First World War.
The Museum's Annenberg Auditorium is the venue for the related lecture series on WWI organized by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies. The fall dates are October 8, November 5, November 19, and December 3. For more information on the guest speakers and topics of each lecture visit the Upcoming Events Calendar. … More +

Conference: The Bible, Narrative, and ModernityNotre Dame Conference Center (McKenna Hall)
The Bible, Narrative, and Modernity
March 27 - 28, 2014
Notre Dame Conference Center
The Bible, Narrative, and Modernity joins an already rich interdisciplinary project at Notre Dame that seeks to reimagine the relationship between Religion and Literature. Focusing on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, this symposium seeks to upend the common characterization of this period as increasingly secular. The presiding critical commonplace holds that Asiatic archaeological research, widespread developments in geology across the continent that culminated in Darwinian evolutionary biology, and, perhaps most importantly, the importation of German biblical criticism precipitated a crisis of faith that rapidly transformed European society—particularly in Britain—into a primarily secular body over the course of the eighteenth- and nineteenth-centuries. Favoring a secular narrative of middle-class emergence, nationalism, and the aesthetics of realism, eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literary scholars have embraced and reasserted this dominant narrative. By examining the Bible as narrative and the role it plays in shaping eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature, this symposium challenges this common narrative of secularization, while exploring a range of religion and literature methodologies in the scholarship of these two periods. … More +
