Venus in Transit: Prehistoric Art and Religion
28 January 2019
A conversation with Silvia Tomášková (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) and Nicolas Conard (University of Tübingen) hosted by Pamela Klassen (University of Toronto) and Monique Scheer (University of Tübingen)
Tübingen houses some of the oldest works of art ever discovered; archaeologists also hypothesize that they had religious functions. This installment of the ‘Schloss Conversations’ brings together perspectives from religious studies, cultural history, and archaeology to think about the social and political contexts of the narratives that emerge around such artifacts and how they might be fueled by the apparatus provided by the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site.
