clip_image001I just learned that Danusha V. Goska is scheduled to speak about the Shroud on Wednesday, April 30th, at 6:00 pm at the Catholic Campus Ministry Club on the William Paterson University Campus in Wayne, New Jersey.

Danusha V. Goska, PhD, is a writer and teacher living in New Jersey. She has lived and worked in Africa, Asia, Europe, on both coasts, and in the heartland, of the United States. She holds an MA from UC Berkeley and a PhD from Indiana University Bloomington. She currently works at WPUNJ. Her writing has been praised by a variety of scholars, including John Mearsheimer, Father John Pawlikowski, Robert Ellsberg and Paul Loeb. She has won the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Grant, the Halecki Award, and the Eva Kagan Kans award.

At the risk of repeating myself, again and perhaps again and yet again as I said before, I first encountered the writings of Danusha Goska more than a decade ago when I read a comment about the shroud published by Barrie Schwortz (it is about 1/3 of the way down the page). I’ve discussed her in ‘If the shroud is a forgery, where are its precedents?’ two and a half years ago. There was Bieganski the Blog: The Shroud of Turin and Catholics, Atheists, Censorship and the Shroud of Turin: Who Censored Whom? by Danusha in Send Save Delete.

One year ago this month, Danusha published an excellent book review of Thomas de Wesselow’s “The Sign.” If you haven’t read Understanding Art; Misunderstanding Premodern Man, do so.

So, if you will be near Wayne on April 30th, don’t miss her talk. Wayne, by-the-way, is a mere 25 miles from Manhattan on Interstate 80.
