Good Sabbath, darlings.
PeaceBang was cyber-thumbling through the latest issue of Harvard Divinity Today
and came across this item:
"The Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS) and the Henry Luce Foundation have named Amy M. Hollywood, the Elizabeth H. Monrad Professor of Christian Studies at HDS, as one of seven Henry Luce III Fellows in Theology for 2007–08.
Selected on the basis of the strength of their proposals to conduct creative and innovative theological research, theLuce Fellows engage in yearlong research in various areas of theological inquiry. Hollywood—under the title “Acute Melancholia: On Loss, Mourning, and Mysticism”—
will juxtapose medieval Christian mystical texts in which union with Christ is understood as a form of melancholic lovesickness with modern theological, psychoanalytic, feminist, and queer accounts of mourning and melancholia."
And PeaceBang swooned.
Go, Amy Hollywood, go, go!! Please publish that book as soon as you can, and know that PeaceBang is salivating in anticipation as she simultaneously shyly admires the heck out of your glamorous name and beautiful self.
And to the HDS person who thought my little accomplishments here worthy for inclusion in the lastest alumn/ae news, I tip my hat in surprised appreciation. One does what one can, my Crimson friends, one does what one can.
