      EVENT DETAILS
      The American Fraternity: An Illustrated Ritual Manual

      In a Chats in the Stacks book talk, Andrew Moisey, assistant professor of art history and visual studies at Cornell and an award-winning photographer, will present his new book, The American Fraternity: An Illustrated Ritual Manual, named one of the “Best Photobooks of 2018” by Time magazine and Buzzfeed. Moisey explores the often-dark rituals, ceremonies, and secret oaths that shape college Greek life. With photographs taken over seven years inside a fraternity, and including scanned pages from the fraternity’s decades-old ritual manual, The American Fraternity gives an intimate and provocative look at the secretive world that has helped shape the majority of our modern leaders, from U.S. presidents and senators to justices and executives.
      Sponsored by Olin Library, Cornell University. Light refreshments served.
