THATCamp MSU - Digital Humanities Virtual Unconference @ Zoom

Digital Humanities @ MSU puts on an annual Unconference at MSU faculty, staff, and students to bring people back together (virtually) after the summer and introduce new folks to the DH@MSU community; to share knowledge, expertise, and skills among the community; to build connections between community members for future collaborations, and troubleshooting; and, to identify needs for and interest in future activities

This day-long unconference is a fantastic opportunity for people, whether formally a part of the DH@MSU community or not, to (virtually) gather, learn from each other, and make connections to carry forward into the academic year.

Mystical Phenomena in Modern Catholicism: An Illustrated Talk
Oct 8 @ 7:30 pm

Mystical Phenomena in Modern Catholicism: An Illustrated Talk
with Prof. Paula Kane, Endowed Chair of Contemporary Catholic Studies

Thursday, October 8th, 7:30pm

Among the more unusual elements of Catholic mysticism is the tradition of stigmata, chosen persons who are marked supernaturally with the wounds of the crucified Christ. The lecture will address the case of an American stigmatic of the early twentieth century and the political uses made of such events for a Catholic population trying to adapt to American society.
