Speaker series:

This virtual presentation is part of the 2021-2022 virtual speaker series “Experiencing Images: How the Visual Shapes Our World,” which features distinguished speakers who explore individual and collective engagement with photography, a medium that defines visual culture. Through decoding this visual landscape, we become conscious of how we use images to construct identity and meaning. The lectures in this series will address themes including photography exhibitions and civic spectatorship, surveillance, and the construction of race, image production, and representation, and trauma and memory. The series is curated by Holly Filsinger, graduate student in visual culture. The series is hosted by Illinois State University Wonsook Kim College of Fine Arts and is supported and co-sponsored by the Office of Research and Graduate Studies, University Galleries of Illinois State University, the School of Communication, the Department of English, the Department of History, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program. Virtual lectures via Zoom are free and open to the public. If you need a special accommodation to fully participate in this program/event, please contact hefilsi@ilstu.edu. Please allow sufficient time to arrange the accommodation.
