Inside Gustavus (January 21, 2010)

Volume 42, Number 18

Faculty/Staff Activities

Patric Giesler (sociology & anthropology) collaborated with Brazilian anthropologists during most of 2009 as a visiting scholar and research associate of the prestigious Brazilian research center Centro de Estudos Afro-Orientais (Center for Afro-Oriental Studies; CEAO), Universidade Federal da Bahia, Brasil (Federal University of Bahia, Brazil). In addition to aiding CEAO scholars on their particular manuscripts, including translations of segments for publication (e.g., of Dr. Milton Moura's work, "Os Ritmos Calientes do Caribe no Carnaval da Bahia" ["Hot Caribbean Rhythms in the Carnival of Bahia"] for the Revista Brasileira do Caribe, Giesler (a) worked on his own book on little-known Brazilian messianic movements with co-author Dr. Claudio Pereira; (b) gave an invited address and special seminar for CEAO faculty and graduate students on "A Natureza Complexa do 'Acreditar' e os Cultos Afro-Brasileiros" ("The Complex Nature of 'Belief/Believing' and the Afro-Brazilian Cults"; July 2009); (c) carried out intensive field research on an Afro-Brazilian secret society, the Culto aos Babá Eguns (the Cult to the Esteemed Ancestor Spirits), on an island off the northeast Brazilian coast; (d) wrote and published the first of three articles on the secret society, which entailed the important collaboration later in the U.S. of Matt Dobosenski (GTS media services) on the capturing of photos from very rare video footage of a secret society ceremony for Giesler's article "Touched by Death: 'Otherworldly' Theatricality, Belief, and Ritual Performance in the African-Brazilian Secret Society of the Babá Eguns," KARPA: Journal of Dissident Theatricalities, Visual Arts and Culture, 2.2 (August 2009) (www.calstatela.edu/misc/karpa/...); and (e) wrote and published two critical reviews: one of Homelands and Diasporas: Holy Lands and Other Places, edited by André Levy and Alex Weingrod (Stanford: Stanford University Press) in Ethos: Journal of the Society for Psychological Anthropology(listing: 36.4 [2008]; text: http://ethos.anthro.illinois.edu/...); and the other of Spirits With Scalpels: The Culturalbiology of Religious Healing by Sidney M. Greenfield (Walnut Creek, CA: Left Coast Press) in JP: The Journal of Parapsychology, 73 (2009): 188-195.

National Theological Conference at Gustavus... Gustavus will be a partner site for the Trinity Institute's 40th national theological conference, "Building an Ethical Economy," on Jan. 27-29. Keynote addresses will be webcast in the Heritage Room, and faculty from the Department of Economics and Management will facilitate discussions. Advocating for an ethical economy—one that works toward the idea of sufficiency for all and is resistant to exploitation—is needed in the coming months. Conference participants will wrestle with critical questions—Is capitalism a belief system? What is wealth? Are theology and economics two different worlds? What do we owe the future? The conference partnership is made possible by a collaboration between the Office of Church Relations and the Department of Economics and Management. Cost is $25/person (no charge for Gustavus students, staff, faculty). All are welcome! It's not too late to register—call Marilyn at 933-7001 in Church Relations! Pre-registration is necessary. Conference times: Wednesday evening, Jan. 27, 4:30-7 p.m. (optional); Thursday, Jan. 28, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; and Friday, Jan. 29, 8 a.m.-4:15 p.m.

Off-Campus Events of Interest

Scandinavian Slipper Classes... Classes in making hand-felted Scandinavian Slipper will be held at the St. Peter Community Center on Saturday, Feb. 6. Two classes are available: Class 1 at 8:30 a.m.- noon, OR Class 2 at 2:30-6 p.m. With fiber roving, you will learn to lay out fibers, employ a wet-felting technique, and custom-make seamless slippers. This felting method doesn't require knitting. By the end of class, you'll have a pair of slippers and enjoy warm feet for the rest of the winter. Register at www.stpetercommunityedonline.com for one of the two sessions available. You may also call 507-934-3048 for more information. Cost is $40 + fiber costs (available from instructor or bring your own). To estimate amount of roving needed for a pair of slippers, figure $4 per ounce: Adult woman = 4-5 oz.; man = 6-7 oz.; child 1-4 yrs. = 2-3 oz.; child 5-10 yrs. = 3-4 oz. Dress for wet, clean fun!
