Above all, these images are a record of metamorphosis from a past fractured self to an integrated, self-confident woman.". 7 p.m. This is a Brattleboro Museum and Art Center exhibit and presentation.

Ideas and education

"From Falwell to FOX - The American Religious Right" (Online): In the early 20th century, a conservative movement emerged among American Protestants. After waxing and waning for several decades, in the late 1970s, it found a standard-bearer, the Rev. Jerry Falwell, and became known as the Religious Right. In the 21st century, the Religious Right's viewpoint has been disseminated by FOX NEWS among other media. This presentation will examine the social, political and religious context in which the Religious Right emerged and has developed and the effect it has exerted on politics in the U.S. 1 - 2:30 p.m. Presenter: Daniel Miller, Assoc. Professor in Religion, Bishop's University, Quebec. $10. Online. Information: osher-lifelong-learning/olli-at-uvm-distinguished-speaker-series.
