A one-day symposium on "Joan of Arc/Afterlives" brings together renowned Joan specialists and UVA faculty to discuss Joan's reception history in France and the US.

Joan's many lives have included playing the role of heretic and sexual ingénue, icon of the American feminist movement and symbol of the ultra right in France, victim of the patriarchal establishment and the face of the transgender movement. How can one individual of whom we know so little (and then only through court transcripts and rumor) fulfill so many modern desires?

Screening “Voices Appeared: La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc and the Orlando Consort” is a live multimedia performance and historical reconstruction of Carol Theodor Dreyer’s silent film.
