FACULTY NEWS: Religious Studies

Nancy M. Martin, Ph.D., associate professor, Department of Religious Studies, Wilkinson College, presented a paper titled “Identities, Communities and Religious Figures in Transition: The Transformation a Sixteenth-Century Hindu Saint into a Global Icon“ at the International Conference on the Image held at UCLA on December 2. In November she delivered two lectures at California Lutheran University, the first for students in the religion department on the immensely popular Hindu woman Saint Mirabai, and the second a university-wide lecture titled “Holiness and the Pursuit of Justice: Perspectives from the World Religions.” Professor Martin’s most recent article on this now global figure “Mirabai Comes to America: The Translation and Transformation of a Saint,” published earlier this year in the Journal of Hindu Studies, can be accessed on-line.
