The thyroid gland, which is located in the neck, plays a dominant role in controlling the body’s metabolism by producing chemicals called Hormones. Thyroid disease can be manifest with either an excess or deficiency of these hormones, or sometimes merely by an increase in size which could be due to conditions such as exposure to long standing iodine deficiency or tumours (including cancers). When the thyroid produces excessive thyroid hormones, the human body uses up energy quickly which can result in weight loss, tremors, rapid heart rate and intolerance to heat, to name a few symptoms. In contrast, when there is a deficiency of thyroid hormones, the individual can become sluggish, gain weight, and develop dry skin and hair. These and other issues will be discussed

Pictures in Place, Bodies in Motion: South Indian Temple Murals
Illustrated lecture by Dr. Anna Seastrand, Assistant Professor, Department of Art History, University of Minnesota; author of Body, History, Myth: South Indian Murals, 1550-1800. Her second book, tentatively titled Trees and the Ecologies of Art in South India, reconceives the importance of trees in South Asian art and religious practice in light of their changing social, economic, artistic religious, and environmental ecologies

The talk brings together poetry, paintings, and movement. Dr. Seastrand argues that paintings link literature, legend, and pilgrimage to the somatic experiences of South Indian temple murals. The texts and paintings are dialogical, not copies of one another, but an invitation to speakers, hearers, and viewers to respond to their intertextuality in embodied and multi-sensorial experience.
