Material and Visual Cultures of Religion (MAVCOR)

Yale University’s Center for the Study of Material and Visual Cultures of Religion (MAVCOR) fosters international work on the religious life of things. Sally M. Promey, Director of the Center, has worked in this area for decades, most notably Painting Religion in Public: John Singer Sargent’s Triumph of Religion at the Boston Public Library (Princeton University Press, 2001), winner of the American Academy of Religion’s book award in Historical Studies.

Dr. Promey edited a collection of essay derived from the past few years of work at MAVCOR, Sensational Religion: Sensory Cultures in Material Practice (Yale University Press, 2014).

I am excited to join the MAVCOR team as a member of their Advisory Network and look forward to participating more in future conversations.
