Iliff on the Road: Prof. Jeffrey Mahan, Ring Lake Ranch, WY
June 16, 2013 2:27pm-2:27pm
Description: Professor Jeffrey Mahan, Ralph E. and Norma E. Peck Chair in Religion and Public Communication, and professor of ministry, media and culture, will lead a week-long session, “Imagining the Mountain West,” RingLake Ranch. This session uses film, art and literature to look at the way that the Mountain West has inspired the artistic imagination and the way that human cultures have written their presence on the land. The petroglyphs that mark the ranch and the surrounding region serve as a first text and we will read them in conjunction with Werner Herzog’s amazing documentary, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, which explores the earliest known cave paintings in France. We will also engage the work of later Wyoming artists and authors, including reading some of noted author Annie Proulx’s Wyoming Stories and viewing the work of (and hopefully visiting with) regional painters.
Professor Mahan’s work has focused on religious and theological engagements with both fine and popular film, literature and television. He has also long been involved in field education and other courses that cultivate religious vocation and theological reflection on our lived experience of faith in church, community and culture.
