Join Professor Yasmin Haskell and Doctoral Candidate Makoto Harris Takao from the ARC CHE as they discuss a series of literary, dramatic, artistic and musical works produced in the 17th and 18th centuries by members of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), to teach boys how to live and die well – and sometimes painfully.

This presentation will be accompanied by selections from Strong Woman, a video of a musical play by the Viennese Jesuit equivalent of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Staudt and Adolph. The play commemorates the supposed Christian martyrdom of a sixteenth-century Japanese noblewoman.

Refreshments will be provided.
