Come to my defense

I mean that literally.  If you're in the Princeton area, feel free to come to my dissertation defense this coming Monday, October 17, 2011 at 3:00pm in McCormick Hall 104 at Princeton University. Therein I shall attempt to show how an innocent Byzantine icon of Mary upends the assumptions of Michel Foucault regarding power, Giorgio Vasari regarding art, Nancy Jay regarding sacrifice, and Karl Barth regarding predestination (key word: attempt).
