Through a Glass Darkly: Third Annual UCCS Symposium on Apocalyptic Monday, March 20, 3:30 PM – 6:00 PM Heller Center For Arts & Humanities 1250 North Campus Heights, Colorado Springs, CO 80918 Tuesday, March 21, 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM Heller Center For Arts & Humanities 1250 North Campus Heights, Colorado Springs, CO 80918 Tuesday, March 21, 4:45 PM – 7:00 PM University Hall Room 109 1420 Austin Bluffs Pkwy, Colorado Springs, CO 80918 The notion of Apocalypse is charged with manifold meaning, and has gained currency over the last two decades with the approach and passing of Y2K. It is a genre that spans cultures, time and space, and one that resists easy categorical definition. In Through a Glass Darkly, numerous scholars and artists will deliver presentations at the Heller Center for Arts & Humanities: Lorenzo DiTommaso (Concordia University), Kevin Hughes (Villanova University), Jesse Hoover (Baylor University), Nathaniel Kidd (Marquette University), Francis Gumerlock (Providence Theological Seminary), Jessica Hunter-Larsen (Colorado College), Suzanne MacAulay (UCCS), and Colin McAllister (UCCS). Each will present dynamic aspects on the notion of Apocalyptic, as well as join the class HUM 3990: Visions of Darkness: Apocalypse and Dystopia in Literature, Art & Film for a concluding roundtable discussion. Through a Glass Darkly is generously underwritten by the UCCS Humanities Program, the Heller Center for Arts & Humanities, the UCCS Department of Visual and Performing Arts, the UCCS Department of History and the UCCS Center for Religious Diversity and Public Life.
