"Representing Diversity: Art, Immigration, and the Formation of Cultural Identity"

Saturday, March 06 - 1:00PM to 2:45PM
Salon B

The cultural interactions fostered by globalization and immigration
are leading a growing number of photo-based artists,
like Sara Angelucci, Rafael Goldchain, and Christina Leslie, to
plumb the evolving character of cultural identity, whether their
own or that of the other. This panel will address the trials and
tribulations concomitant with the pressures to adapt, conform,
and assimilate, the indelible imprint of individual and collective
memory, the power of artifacts to encapsulate traces of social
status and human interactions, and the use of language as an
index of cultural identity and social behaviors.
