Religious Studies Spring Roundtable: Literary Journalism and Religion

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Klein Conference Room, Room A510, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall Room 510, 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011

Each semester, the Religious Studies program at Eugene Lang College presents a roundtable where scholars working various areas of religious studies, including Lang/New School faculty and often including students and alumni as well, come together for presentations and lively conversation around an organizing theme.

This spring's theme is Literary Journalism and Religion, featuring presentations from:

Thomas Biery (Lang) on his first experiences of literary journalism as a student and how it relates to his work now in the Journalism + Design program.

Scott Korb (Lang) on the collection Radiant Truths and why the genre of literary journalism is particularly useful for writing about religion.

Alex Mar (author, Witches of America) discussing her research and writing about witches, mysticism, magic and a range of spiritual practices.

Refreshments and a discussion moderated by Mark Larrimore, program director of Religious Studies, will follow the presentations.
