Draw Your Weapons: Sarah Sentilles
Artists and Speakers Series
Sarah Sentilles is a writer, critical theorist, scholar of religion and author of many books, including Breaking Up with God: A Love Story. At the core of her scholarship, writing and activism is a commitment to investigating the roles that language, images and practices play in oppression, violence, social transformation and justice movements. She earned a bachelor’s degree at Yale and master’s and doctoral degrees at Harvard.
“Sentilles delivers a learned, poetic and interdisciplinary assessment of the ways in which the photographic image has been abused and weaponized, while also suggesting ways in which the arts can help serve as an antidote to this problem,” observes Publisher’s Weekly.
Admission is free.
