“Monastic Desires” lecture Feb. 7

On Tuesday, Feb. 7, at 12:30 p.m., Women and Gender Studies will host a lecture called “Monastic Desires: Love and Longing for God in Byzantium,” which is a work-in-progress by Derek Krueger. Krueger’s lecture will focus on the work of Symeon the New Theologian (949-1022), showing how some medieval Orthodox Christian monks drew on the language and tropes of ancient and medieval Greek romance literature to describe the structure of their relationship with God. The talk will be held in Curry 342.
