The American Fraternity: An Illustrated Ritual Manual

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Olin Library, Room 106G
Olin Library, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

In a Chats in the Stacks book talk, Andrew Moisey, Assistant Professor of Art History and Visual Studies at Cornell and an award-winning photographer, will present his new photo book, The American Fraternity: An Illustrated Ritual Manual (Daylight Books, November 6, 2018). Moisey will explore the often dark rituals, ceremonies, and secret oaths that shape college Greek life. Captured in photographs taken over seven years inside a fraternity, and including scanned pages from their decades-old ritual manual, The American Fraternity gives an intimate and provocative look at the secretive world that has helped shape the majority of our modern leaders, from U.S. presidents and senators, to justices, and executives.

This book talk is sponsored by Olin Library. Light refreshments served.
