Symposium on "Visualities of Memory" September 18-19.

“Visualities of Memory” aspires to bring together a broad spectrum of Macalester College departments (Psychology, Religious Studies, Anthropology, Classics, Theater, Biology, Russian Studies, History, Art History, Sociology, Political Sciences, and French and Francophone Studies) for a discussion on various interpretations, approaches and experiences of memory.

The Symposium will focus attention on the visual dimension of memory and its manifestations,processes, and representations in a variety of media, through mental eruptions, particularly of traumatic memories. Symposium organizers include JoĆ«lle Vitiello, Professor at the French and Francophone Studies Department, and Vicky Karaiskou, Distinguished Visiting Scholar in Art History. It is the outcome of the spring 2014 faculty reading and discussion group “Art, Collective Memory and Trauma” convened by Professor Karaiskou at the Serie Center.
