Religion Series: Myth, Land & Tradition: Making Modern Hinduism
Wednesday, November 3 at 12:00 pm at B’nai Havurah
In what ways are Hindu communities articulated, preserved, produced, and altered through stories and storytelling? This talk explores the intimate relationship between myth and community in the making of what we call “Hinduism” and what Hindus refer to as the practice of “sanātana dharma” or the eternal law. We will consider how myths inform and shape the cultural traditions, religious beliefs, and social and political structures of Hindu communities in contradictory and complementary ways. Hindu myths fall into four categories: myths that explain specific practices; myths justifying rituals; myths grounding philosophical beliefs and theological shifts in the tradition; and myths connected to land. We will see how myths operate paradoxically as both cultural “glue” and demarcations of difference, connecting elite and non-elite Hindu practices/beliefs through narrative iterations of community.
Present by: Dheepa Sundaram, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Hindu Studies, Critical Theory and Digital Religion at the University of Denver.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story
Thursday, November 11 at 1:00 pm at BMH-BJ
What do the most ravishingly beautiful actress of the 1930s and 40s and the inventor whose concepts were the basis of cell phone and bluetooth technology have in common? They are both Hedy Lamarr, the glamour icon whose ravishing visage was the inspiration for Snow White and Cat Woman and a technological trailblazer who perfected a secure radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes during WWII.
Weaving interviews and clips with never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life—from her beginnings as an Austrian Jewish emigre to her scandalous nude scene in the 1933 film Ecstasy to her glittering Hollywood life to her ground-breaking, but completely uncredited inventions to her latter years when she became a recluse, impoverished and almost forgotten—Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story brings to light the story of an unusual and accomplished woman, spurned as too beautiful to be smart, but a role model to this day.
Come watch the film and share your thoughts afterwards.
Film length 90 minutes. Viewed in the BMH-BJ Gallery.
