Dr. David Stowe @ Milligan College Hyder Auditorium

No text has spoken of exile and displacement more compellingly than Psalm 137. For many centuries, this short Hebrew poem has been a cultural touchstone for music and religion across the world. Dr. David Stowe, professor of English and religious studies at Michigan State University, will discuss his book Song of Exile: The Enduring Mystery of Psalm 137. This interdisciplinary talk will demonstrate the Psalm’s enduring place in popular culture.
