March 17: Lecture: The Veil in Islamic Societies

The Veil in Islamic Societies: An Historical and Social Overview
8:00 pm
Sutherland Hall Lounge
Audience: Open to all Pitt Students
Cost: Free
Sponsored by: Global Studies Program, International Studies Living Learning Community

Shane Minkin, PhD candidate in the joint History and Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies program at New York University, will discuss how the veiling of Muslim women has become a political issue of late. The French government banned the veil (along with other conspicuously religious accessories) from all public schools in 2004, sparking a series of protests. As recently as December 2008, a judge in a Georgia court held a Muslim woman in contempt for refusing to remove her veil. What, then, is the meaning of the veil? How did the tradition evolve? What are its links to the colonial Muslim world, and what might it mean to veil? This talk will provide an overview of veiling from pre-Islamic times through today. We will discuss the role of the veil in colonialism and explore the different types of veils throughout the Muslim world. Finally, we will link the discourse surrounding the veil to broader discourses surrounding questions of women and gender and the colonial and post-!
colonial worlds.

March 14: Colloquium on Secularism

boundary 2, an international journal of literature and culture
presents b2 editors

• Joseph Buttigieg of Notre Dame University
• Stathis Gourgouris of Columbia University
• Ronald Judy of the University of Pittsburgh
• Aamir Mufti of UCLA
• Bruce Robbins of Columbia University

who with several Pittsburgh Colleagues will hold

A Colloquium on

10 AM to Noon, Saturday, March 14, 2009
501 Cathedral of Learning

In 2007, boundary 2 issued a call for papers that produce a historical humanist critique of religions, especially faith-based or monotheistic religions. This call for papers rested on the assumption that a critical journal is by definition a secular project and neither legitimates religions nor aligns itself with them or their apparent secular derivatives. boundary 2 will provide a forum to discuss this "new critique of religion" that not only takes into account the foundations of ‘modernity’ but takes as its own starting point the changed place of religion in our world(s). We sought and published essays that describe, analyze, and historicize the implications of the ways in which religions work in the world today. Topics included the contrast between faith and reason; the manipulation of religion by secular power; the relations between religion and populism; the political actions that have made religions prominent again; and so on. These essays clarified the work religions do in their social orders and how critical intellectuals should best understand that work and best evaluate the worlds that they intend to produce.

March 16: Deadline for the CERIS 2009 Undergraduate Research Symposium


A reminder the deadline for student papers is March 16, 2009 for the CERIS 2009 Undergraduate Research Symposium, Islam in the World: Politics, People, Places. Please encourage your students to participate.

Dear University of Pittsburgh Faculty,

I am writing on behalf of the Consortium for Educational Resources on Islamic Studies (CERIS), of which Pitt is a member, inviting your participation in an exciting opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge in an arena often not available to undergraduates. On March 28, 2009, CERIS will sponsor an Undergraduate Research Symposium at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh entitled “Islam in the World: People, Politics, Places.” Students from 28 member institutions are invited to submit research papers and then present their work to a panel of judges. Cash prizes totaling $500 will be distributed to the top three papers in each category: Politics & Policy, and Religion and Culture. A third category for artistic or personal presentations will also be held, but these submissions are not eligible for prizes.
On the preceding evening (March 27), a keynote address will be given at Duquesne by Dr. Richard Bulliet, Professor of History at Columbia University and former director of the Middle East Institute there. Dr. Bulliet will also speak directly to the students at a breakfast on Saturday morning before the Symposium begins.
With the 2009 theme of Islam in the World: Politics, People, Places, students may submit papers with topics such as: Dubai and the Credit Crunch; Hamas: Freedom Fighters or Terrorists; Fashion Fusion: Turkish Art and German Design; Rap, Rock and the Muslim Faithful in Indonesia; Muslims in American Democratic Discourse. Students should keep in mind that Islamic Studies encompasses many languages, literatures, and disciplines. It extends from the seventh century to the present, and includes broad geographical areas of the world. Islamic Studies can include but is not limited to history, religion, law, politics, sociology, science, art and culture, language and literature. Students from all majors are eligible to participate in the symposium. Research papers need not be written just for this symposium, but can be the result of work for current or previous classroom requirements. Papers should be 8 – 12 double-spaced pages; students should seek the advice of a faculty member to ensure the quality of their research and paper. Students will also be required to make a 10 – 15 minute presentation of their papers. We encourage you to support your students by attending the symposium on March 28, 2009, and ask that you consider serving as a symposium panel juror for participants from other campuses.
Information about the 2009 CERIS Undergraduate Research Symposium (including important deadlines, submission details, guidelines for writing, and judging criteria) are available at Please note that final paper submissions are due by March 16th.

March 18: Department Colloquium

The Department of Religious Studies

Brown Bag Lunch Colloquium Series

University of Pittsburgh

Rebecca Denova
Visiting Lecturer, Department of Religious Studies, University of Pittsburgh
“And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.”

(“Woodstock,” Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young)

“It took Jesus a thousand years to die. Images of his corpse did not appear in churches until the tenth century.”
With this opening gambit, Rita Brock and Rebecca Parker have presented an in-depth analysis of the art and literature of ancient Christianity in “Saving Paradise: How Christianity Traded Love of This World for Crucifixion and Empire.” Simply put, they claim that their evidence demonstrates that the central tenent of ancient Christianity for a thousand years, that of manifesting God’s “kingdom” on earth (Eden), was replaced by a much later theology that stressed warrior emperors and empire, largely influenced by the art and religious narratives of violence and suffering of northern Europe.

Wednesday, March 18, 2009
12:00 PM
144 Cathedral of Learning

Rebecca Denova specializes in early Christianity and is the author of ‘The Things Accomplished Among Us’: Prophetic Tradition in the Structural Pattern of Luke-Acts (Sheffield, 1997) and “A Historical and Literary Understanding of the Passion Narratives in the Gospels” (in Passionate Dialogues: Critical Perspectives on Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, which she co-edited with Daniel Burton, Mise, 2005). She is currently working on the historicity of alleged Jewish “persecution” against Christians in the first century. Prior to teaching at Pitt, Dr. Denova was associate professor of religious studies at Bethany College.
