Dr. Jennifer Brown, Chair of the English and World Literatures Department at Marymount Manhattan College, has been invited to participate in a panel discussion as part of CUNY Graduate Program’s upcoming “Hagiography in the Classroom” event.

The “Teaching the Saints” colloquium brings together some eight panelists, covering hagiographic traditions in Western and Eastern Medieval Christianity, combining scholars of the Medieval West and Byzantine East, as well as those of Late Roman Antiquity. The goals of the colloquium are primarily pedagogical, asking scholars of hagiography to share and discuss their teaching strategies and the source materials they use to teach sanctity and hagiographical texts to undergraduate students.
