POSTPONED: Anointed With Oil: How Christianity and Crude Made Modern America
Faculty and graduate students interested in participating should contact the seminar coordinator, Mark Brilliant, Associate Professor of History, mbrill [at] berkeley.edu.
Anointed With Oil is a hefty book on a hefty subject, which is why we're looking to distribute it to attendees well in advance of Professor Dochuk's visit. As always, the expectation is that folks come to the seminar having read the whole book, in order to be prepared to discuss it with the author. If that's too tall a task, Professor Dochuk recommends focusing on the Prologue/Introduction and chapters 3-9 as the "heart of the book." He then advises that chapters 6-9 work as a "nice cluster."
Lunch will be provided - along with books (to be distributed this week). Hope to see you there.
