Luncheon: Roman Nuns, Art, and Identity

Thursday, November 15, 2012, from 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM

Description

An informal discussion with Dr. Marilyn Dunn, Associate Professor in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts, LUC.

In her article, *Invisibilia per visibilia: Roman Nuns, Art Patronage, and the Construction of Identity*, Dunn examines how nuns engaged in art patronage in the churches they could not enter in order to construct identities that both subscribed to monasticism and challenged the constriction on enclosure.
