Deathpower Exhibit Lecture by Professor Erik Davis




Death, Care and Consequences

Join Law Warschaw Gallery in welcoming Erik W. Davis, Professor and Chair, Department of Religious Studies, Macalester College, for a lecture that proposes possible relationships between death, care, and power with a focus on Cambodian Buddhist practices, but also through comparative examples from elsewhere in the world. Davis wrote the book "Deathpower: Buddhism's Ritual Imagination in Cambodia (Columbia University Press, 2016), which inspired the current Law Warschaw Gallery exhibition's namesake and its conceptual points of departure for its curator, Erin Robideaux Gleeson.

This lecture will be recorded and made available but not live streamed.
