The Department of American Studies presents the 3rd annual Mergen-Palmer Distinguished Lecture in American Studies. This annual lecture is named in honor of Professors Bernard Mergen and Phyllis Palmer, each of whom played a major role as a scholar and teacher at the George Washington University. We particularly honor their contributions to shaping the Department of American Studies over many years. This year's lecture is titled "Engineering the Sacred: Religion and Landscape in the Mississippi River Delta" by Dr. Michael Pasquier. The Mississippi River Delta is a fluid landscape that has always been susceptible to catastrophes of natural, human, and according to some believers, supernatural origin. Since the Great Flood of 1927, it has become one of the most engineered landscapes in the world. By observing life in the Mississippi River Delta, we learn that the technological rationalization of the American landscape, however totalizing and seemingly complete, remains suspended in the American religious imagination, ever mindful of the limits of human reason and the capacity to control nature.
