CSRS Winter Public Lecture Series

The CSRS Winter Public Lecture Series starts January 2016. Join the CSRS and Artist in Residence Annabel Howard for her talk, The Scarlet Ox and the Black Madonna: Exploring Italy’s Modern Festivals and their Creative Histories. Annabel’s writing uses the experience of living and working in Italy to examine how we relate to the past. She will read from her manuscript-in-progress, The Scarlet Ox and the Black Madonna, which uses religious and secular festivals to engage with ideas of identity, tradition, and community in modern Italy. The lecture takes place Thursday, January 14, 4:30 pm in the UVic Human and Social Development (HSD) Building, Room A240.

Annabel Howard is a graduate student working on an MA in Creative Writing. She studied art history at Oxford and has recently completed short biographies of Kandinsky and Caravaggio for Laurence King Publishing, UK. Her creative non-fiction has appeared in The Spectator, The White Review, Glass Magazine, and Notes from the Underground.
