Frank van Vree @ Columbia on Oct 21, 12-2

October 20, 2010

Tomorrow (Thurs Oct 21) from 12-2pm at Columbia’s Journalism school, room 107B we will continue the fall Colloquium series with a talk from Frank van Vree.

Entitled “Shock and Penance: An Archaeological Approach to the Early Imagery of Nazi Crimes,” his talk sounds like a gem for anyone interested in the history of photography and the politics of imagery.

Van Vree’s work ranges almost as widely as our field of communications itself: trained as a historian and a philosopher, he has written on public memory, visual culture, the public sphere, and the cultural¬† dimensions of journalism, among other things; he has also founded a highly successful journalism master’s program at the University of Amsterdam and heads the Department of Media and Culture there, in addition to writing about media and society for a number of weeklies.

See you at noon in room 107B.
