The Needle and the Bullhorn:
Cloth-Making as Religious and Political Expression
A Free Public Lecture by Dr. Donna Bowman
Associate Dean and Associate Professor, Honors College, University of Central Arkansas
Tuesday, October 23
5:30-7:00 p.m. in Meyer Library 101
Why have women been associated with cloth-making for twenty thousand years? What role has cloth played in religious rituals and doctrine? And how has third-wave feminism remixed this history into a new set of shocking, radical juxtapositions — domestic arts brought into the public square? Discover the surprising connections between spinning yarn and spinning meaning in a journey from Norwegian bogs to Banksy’s street art.
Everyone is invited to this free public lecture!
Parking available in Lot 20 and Bear Park South (on Holland, across from the O’Reilly Catholic Campus Center)
Sponsored by the Department of Religious Studies Lecture Series and the College of Humanities and Public Affairs
