Professor Tiina Allik Explores the Authentic Self

Loyola press release - March 20, 2000

(New Orleans)—Loyola University New Orleans will present "The Naked Woman and the Naked Self: Two Parables About Bodies, Clothing, and Selfhood," by Loyola Professor Tiina Allik, as part of its annual Yamauchi Lectures in Religion on Sunday, April 2 at 7:30 p.m. in Multimedia Room 1 of the Monroe Library on Loyola’s main campus, 6363 St. Charles Ave.

The lecture will analyze two parables concerning the basis of selfhood and the tension between the outside world and its pressures, represented by clothing, and the authentic self, represented by the naked form.

The Yamauchi Lectures in Religion is named in memory of the Rev. H. James Yamauchi, S.J., a former chair of Loyola’s Department of Religious Studies who taught at Loyola from 1956 to 1966. The Department of Religious Studies at Loyola sponsors the series.

The lecture is free and open to the public. A reception in Seminar Room 3 of the Monroe Library will follow.
