DVSS 2012 Lecture
the remains of a prison: fugitive knowledge on the wings of red arrows
In Gasson 305 on October 29 at 5:00 p.m., our Distinguished Visiting Scholar for 2012, Avery Gordon, will present a lecture entitled the remains of a prison: fugitive knowledge on the wings of red arrows:
"How to tell the story of a very old place of confinement and punishment? What happens if all the pictures are wrong or missing and the people long gone? What traces and messages might they have left for us to find? Is it possible now, after such terrible treatment, to offer those confined in the prison a more hospitable welcome? This is the hope."
Please join us to hear this fascinating scholar!
