In Conversation: Visual Resources for Understanding Race

Join Institute for the Humanities graduate student fellow A. Sheree Brown in a conversation focusing on the visual culture resources UMMA created for the LSA Theme Semester, Understanding Race. Twenty-two works of art found in the galleries, display cases, and study rooms have been selected to illuminate the complexity of conceptions and representations of race within several cultures. Even if you are familiar with the objects in question, you will appreciate the fresh approach to this material. Brown will explore these objects and engage visitors in conversation about their genesis and interpretation.

Understanding Race UMMA Teaching and Learning materials were created by Summer 2012 UM Arts of Citizenship fellow and history/women’s studies PhD.student Ángela Pérez-Villa, and will also be used by faculty and students in the course of the theme semester.
