Muriel Hasbun: "Conferring Significance Across Borders: Photographic Education in a Transnational Context"

Friday, March 08 - 2:00PM to 2:45PM
Honore Ballroom

With some two million Salvadorans living in the U.S, El Salvador offers a lens into issues of migration and cultural identity that are central to much contemporary art and photography. Since 2007, Muriel Hasbun has taught El Salvador: International Experience/Transnational Identity, a seminar/studio and study-away course at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. This course invites students to learn about the history and culture of El Salvador and its diaspora communities in the U.S., to become mentors and ambassadors of culture, and to probe photography's role in the mediation of one's sense of self and place in a global/local context.
