CHRIST AMONG THE MEDIEVAL MENDICANTS

Christ Among the Medieval Mendicants commemorates the 750th anniversary of the establishment of Corpus Christi as a universal feast day (1264) and the 750th anniversary of the Barcelona Disputation between Dominican Friar Paul Christian and Rabbi Moses Nachmanides (1263). 2013 is also (arguably) the 750th anniversary of St. Thomas Aquinas' composing the Summa Contra Gentiles, as well as the Office and Hymns of Corpus Christi. His Dominican superior, St. Raymond of Peñafort, is said to have been the inspiration for both the SCG and Disputation. Various experts will present on Eucharist and Evangelization.

CRITICAL/LIBERAL/ARTS II: A BABEL SYMPOSIUM


We have been inspired by the recent experiments of thinkers, artists, and technologists who are crafting, composing, curating, inventing, agitating, building, healing, resisting, and playing as ways of inquiring into the limits and consequences of our humanities, university, and world. Presenters were invited
to think about critique in proximity to other modes of action, especially those of making and creation — todiscover creation and critique inhering in one another, or wending apart, or crossing one another again and again like a pair of knives being whetted, or like the faces of the proverbial Mobius strip.
