Alyson,
In response to your forwarded inquiry about the Day of the Dead, I've never
used this theme or topic with students, but it sounds like a very rich and
interesting topic, especially if compared to other cultures' approaches to
memory and ritual. I just received a notice from the Minneapolis Institute of
Arts that they will have an exhibit this fall entitled Muertos de Gusto! Day
of the Dead: Memory and Ritual. It runs from Sept. 14-Dec.1, 1996. The
curator is Louise Lincoln and I'm sure the education Dept. would be of
assistance in finding resources, etc. Contact the Minneapolis Institute of
Arts, 2400 Third Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55404, phone (612) 870-3030. They
also have a web site at http://www.mtn.org/MIA. I would appreciate any other
information you gather on this subject.
