Reception to follow
Established by a gift from Dr. David A. and Mary Ann Cofrin, this lecture series presents talks by outstanding art historians, critics, curators and museum professionals.
Lecture & Book Signing: Surfing into Spirituality and Environmental Action
Bron Taylor, UF Professor of Religion, Nature, and Environmental Ethics and a Carson Fellow of the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society in Munich, Germany, will address how moving water, and human bodies moving through water, can evoke religious perception and felt ethical obligations toward ecological systems. Beginning with a history of the practice and tracing the increasing construction since Earth Day of the sport as a religious practice, Taylor will explore surfing as a form of nature-spirituality. Taylor’s Dark Green Religion: Nature Spirituality and the Planetary Future (University of California Press, 2010); Avatar and Nature Spirituality (Waterloo, Canada: Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2013) and Civil Society in the Age of Monitory Democracy (Oxford and New York: Berghahn Books, March 2013) will be for sale in the museum store.
