    September 27, 2014 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM The ancient objects we associate with the history of Brown University are physical manifestations of the veneration we feel about this place. Like sacred religious relics, the time-worn buildings and portraits and ceremonial artifacts we have enshrined are touchstones that enable our sense of connection to Brown. In this talk University Curator and Senior Lecturer in American Studies Rob Emlen examines the history and the meanings for Brown of those objects we have chosen to venerate. http://brown.edu/Haffenreffer List Art Building, Room 120 Open to the Public, Haffenreffer Museum, First Years, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, For Masters candidates only, For PhD candidates only, Audience, Cross-campus academic topics, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Faculty, Staff, Parents, Brown250, Departments, Lectures
