How and why do humanities scholars & social scientists engage with images and visual objects as part of their teaching and research? How can the project of displaying, conserving, or exhibiting visual or digital objects enhance disciplinary & interdisciplinary work in contexts that aren’t typically focused on the visual? What new questions & possibilities come into view for scholars who make curating part of their practice? What kinds of challenges does such work pose?
Please join us for an informal panel featuring Sara Blair (English) Maria Cotera (American Culture, Latino/a Studies, Women’s Studies), Nan Z. Da (English), Kristin Haas (American Culture), and Martha Jones (Department of Afroamerican and African Studies, Law School).
Refreshments will be served; PLEASE RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can provide sufficient quantities.
Don’t miss this opportunity to join us for lively discussion and exchange!
