About the Lecture

In this lecture, Dr. Cammin explores the intersection of art, history, and cultural identity.  How do we conceptualize the past to inform visions of the future?  Dr. Cammin will discuss examples from film, literature, photography, memorials, and comedy that reflect the stories and ephemeral histories we most want to tell ourselves in order to craft the possibilities of our futures.
