MARY'S WELL IN NAZARETH:
Lecture by Susan Slyomovics
Thursday, April 5, 2007 — 4:00 to 6:00pm
For centuries, Mary's Well in the public plaza of Nazareth was a site of pilgrimage, tourism and photography as well as a source of water. Currently there is no water in Mary's Well. What are the visual, oral, environmental, and gendered histories surrounding the presence and absence of water?
