So the big event has come and gone. Thank goodness! My talk on “Masjid An-Nur: Building Meaning in a Minnesota Mosque” went well. I talked a bit fast (13 minutes total talk time, I had a total available of 15 minutes. I was so nervous I dont know if I even smiled!), but people seems to have liked it and I received some good feedback.
Here are some photos from the event (before, during and after) at the University of St. Thomas. There was a very nice reception afterwords with some great food (here is me and my advisory Heather- yep, thats me looking dazed and very tried). I also took a few photos of some buildings on campus: the O’Shaughnessy Educational Center Auditorium where the event took place (it also holds the classrooms for the art history department, so I know that building well) and the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library.
