Arts & Media

The Arts & Media network asks: Does culture travel?

Purposefully naïve but by no means rhetorical, this question invites reflection, from the philosophical and the metaphoric to the practical and the literal. It speaks to all of us, and all of us can speak to it. The Arts & Media network asks: Does culture travel? Purposefully naïve but by no means rhetorical, this question invites reflection, from the philosophical and the metaphoric to the practical and the literal. It speaks to all of us, and all of us can speak to it. Within the broad notion of culture, arts and media are central to our perspective, with media taken to include everything from script to railroads. Working across a range of literary, material, and visual sites, from humanities and social science perspectives, we study processes of mediation, aestheticization, representation, and communication in their historical, social, cultural, and linguistic contexts.

Below, we list events organized by and/or relevant to the network.
