Wide Lens: Memory

May 5, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

What is forgotten? What is remembered? How reliable are our recollections? What ethical questions could or should guide how we engage with others’ memories? Join us at the Stanley Museum of Art as six scholar-artists reflect on memory from the perspective of various disciplines.

This is the second gathering in the UI’s new Wide Lens series, in which researchers, scholars, and artists from across the university briefly present their work on a shared topic of interest, pecha kucha–style, at the Stanley Museum of Art.

Wide Lens is sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies, the Office of the Vice President for Research, and the Stanley Museum of Art. These events are free and open to all.

Free and open to all; no RSVP necessary.

20 slides per presenter, 20 seconds per slide
