CULTURE SHOCK: The ART of Leading Society
Does culture influence us or do we influence culture? How can we distinguish between a cultural icon and a cultural leader? Under what conditions do contributors to specific arts become leading contributors to the culture of their times? How does culture shape how we view each other and ourselves?
THE DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHER
March 26 • 7 p.m. • Jepson Alumni Center
FRAMING THE CONVERSATION:
Immigration and other contemporary social issues
Award-winning photographer and multimedia storyteller Janet Jarman discusses her 16-year photojournalism project on immigration in the U.S. and how she uses the art of photography to change the conversation and help society see contemporary social issues, such as environmental destruction and open government, in a new light. If a picture is worth a thousand words, Jarman—whose work has appeared in The New York Times, TIME, The Washington Post, and other national publications—has written volumes.
