Attend a Faculty-led conversation about Placing and Displacing Memories: Globalizing Visual and Sonic Histories

Research Forum
Placing and Displacing Memories: Globalizing Visual and Sonic Histories

Monday, November 13, 2017
Clark Lounge, Campus Center,
Ithaca College
9:00 am–11:00 am

This international forum engages faculty from a range of disciplines across Ithaca College to address the question of what happens to site-specific memories and histories when mediated in the era of uneven globalization.

As historical events, places, and nations are increasingly understood as embedded within wider networks of transnational and other global connections, this interactive, discussion-driven forum explores how visual and sonic media reflect as well as intervene in this transition. It explores a series of questions, case studies, and dialogues.

Faculty-led conversation and dialogue. Students are welcome to come and observe.

Convenors: Matt Holtmeier, Sueyoung Park Primiano, Andrew Utterson, Patricia Zimmermann (MASS)
