Visual Cultures of Emancipation
A Gallery Tour of “Proclaiming Emancipation” with curators Martha Jones and Clayton Lewis
Hatcher Library Gallery 100
Monday, November 26
2-3 pm
The exhibition “Proclaiming Emancipation” examines debates surrounding the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 through a visual framework, helping contemporary viewers to see how massive social change was envisioned, challenged, and enacted by Americans as part of their everyday lives.Spanning a wide range of media, our tour will examine photographs, lithographs, pantings, journal, and sculpture, in order to see how such various visual perspectives on this period offer us new insights into the study of an historical phenomenon.
Please join the Visual Culture Workshop for a tour and discussion of this exciting exhibition! We look forward to having a wide range of disciplinary perspectives in our discussion of both the materials at hand, and the process of curation as a tool for scholarly inquiry.
Please RSVP to Katie Lennard
Proclaiming Emancipation is presented by the Law School’s Program in Race, Law & History and the William L. Clements Library, in cooperation with the Hatcher Graduate Library.
