moorepicProfessor William Moore has recently had an article published in the Journal for Research in Freemasonry and Fraternalism.

By examining the career of Dr. Darius Wilson, who founded the Royal Arcanum in Boston in the 1870s and oversaw the Royal Masonic Rite in the 1880s, this article suggests a new complex understanding of American fraternalism.
Published in Great Britain by Equinox Publications, the Journal for Research into Freemasonry and Fraternalism is an international, interdisciplinary academic journal dedicated to scholarship concerning the associational lives of men and women from the Middle Ages to the present.

“Standing Upright – Contemporary art in memorial projects in Rwanda” Bruce Clarke

Bruce Clarke is a South African visual artist and photographer, now based in Paris. His art deals with contemporary history, the writing and transmission of this history. He would like to see his work as stimulating reflection on the world and the representation that is made of it. Recognizing that art provides a privileged domain of expression in a complex world he situates himself outside of an overtly self-centered or over personalized form of contemporary art, suggesting that one should not be a bystander in the face of history, but that individual activity can attempt to play a role in the making of that history.
