Girardot, University Distinguished Professor in the religion studies department, gave the first talk on contemporary Daoism titled "Dao Now Oh Wow: American Daoism Today." This talk was given as the inaugural lecture in the Religious Studies Lecture Series at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Ga., in early November.
A second presentation titled "My Legge Work: Reflections on the Victorian Translation of China" was given at a special session of the Arts of Interpretation Group at the American Academy of Religion in Toronto, Canada, on Nov. 23.
Most recently, Girardot presented a talk titled "Where There is No Vision, the People Perish: Making and Unmaking Worlds in the Work of Howard Finster."
This talk was part of a day-long symposium on "Connections to Contemporary Folk Art" that was held in relation to the Smithsonian Institution exhibition at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh in early December.
