MCLA'S HONORS PROGRAM PRESENTS A TALK
North Adams, 4:30 p.m.
MCLA's Honors Program hosts Kimberly Brown on Thursday, February 28, for a talk at 4:30 pm in Murdock Hall Room 218 on MCLA's campus. Dr. Brown's lecture will explore the fraught space between African American performances of the national anthem and visual representations of the American Flag. Dr. Brown's research engages the site of the visual as a way to negotiate the parameters of race, gender, and belonging.  Her book, The Repeating Body: Slavery’s Visual Resonance in the Contemporary (Duke University Press) examines slavery’s profound ocular construction through the presence and absence of seeing in relation to the plantation space. She is currently at work on her second book, tentatively titled “Mortevivum: Photography and the Politics of the Visual.” This project examines images of the dead in the New York Times in 1994 from four geographies: South Africa, Rwanda, Sudan, and Haiti. Brown is the founder and convener of The Dark Room: Race and Visual Culture Studies Seminar. The Dark Room is a working group of scholars who are invested in examining the intersection of critical race theory and visual culture studies.
