Mediums, Media, Mediation: Visual Culture & Haunted Modernities (3/26-27/2010)

The 2010 Mellon Symposium at Haverford College brings together scholars from the fields of art history, media studies, and literature to consider the terms “medium,” “media,” and “mediation” in nineteenth- and twentieth-century culture. Speakers will consider perceptions of modern media as haunted, the figure of the Spiritualist medium, and the centrality of mediation to modern theories of representation.

Speakers include Isobel Armstrong, David Peters Corbett, Jill Galvan, Tom Gunning, Dana Luciano, and Pamela Thurschwell.

The symposium is organized by Haverford’s 2008-10 Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow Rachel Oberter.

Haverford College is located in a suburb of Philadelphia, accessible by SEPTA Regional Rail and Amtrak.

This symposium is free and open to the public; registration is not required.
