Curating Social Change - Graduate Symposium

Join the MLC Research Centre and Communication and Culture graduate students to explore themes and processes of social change through the theory and praxis of exhibition, curation, and literary cultures.

From the modernist period through to the COVID-19 pandemic, the symposium considers how artists and public intellectuals curated cultural shifts and historical upheavals.

Keynote speakers include scholars Christopher Gilbert (Assumption University; author of Caricature and National Character: The United States at War) and Natalie Loveless (University of Alberta; author of How to Make Art at the End of the World: A Manifesto for Research-Creation).

This event also centrally involves academic papers and creative projects from ComCult graduate students as part of the course, CC8836/CMCT 6135 Selected Topics in Media and Culture: Exhibition, Curation, and Literary Cultures.
