A Conversation with Sandow Birk

Open to:
-Faculty -Graduate Students -Open to All -Staff -Undergraduate Students

Sandow Birk is a renowned artist whose work critically addresses social issues in American culture. He has translated and illustrated a modern vernacular edition of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, setting it in the contemporary United States, and has produced an English interpretation of the Qur'an with scenes of contemporary American life as visual metaphors. His creative images accompanying the Qur'an and the Divine Comedy pose questions about the limits of interpretation, the relationship of text and image, and the role of the arts in social and political critique.

Please join us for a talk and conversation with Birk about his work at 4 pm on March 27th in Rare Books & Special Collections on the ground floor of Hesburgh Library.
 
This event is sponsored by the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts, the Devers Family Program in Dante Studies, and the Program in Liberal Studies.
