Beyond Love & Devotion: Exhibiting & Engaging with the Past
Shane Carmody, Director of Development at the State Library of Victoria will consider the Love & Devotion: From Persia & Beyond exhibition as it draws to a close highlighting how & why the Library created the exhibition and the associated public programs.
Dr Kate Brittlebank (Adjunct Senior Research Fellow, Monash University) will reflect on the public and media responses to the exhibition and her own response to the value of such an exhibition, as a teacher of pre-modern Asian history and specialist in pre-modern Islamic South Asia.
The discussion will be chaired by Professor Constant Mews, Director, Centre for Studies in Religion and Theology and a medievalist, teaching at Monash University.
