Lecture: "Visualizing Urban Landscapes” April 3
The Sociology/Anthropology Department's new Certificate in Urban Studies program invites you to take a different view of life in The Big City. You can do so Wednesday, April 3, by attending "Visualizing Urban Landscapes, Perceiving Urban Life," a presentation by University of Chicago Ph.D. student David Schalliol.
Schalliol mixes photographic images, documentary films, and sociology--including a video on a South Side Chicago neighborhood in transition--to illustrate issues of social stratification.
Schalliol's writing and photographs have appeared in such publications as "The American Sociologist," "Design Observer," and "Revue Gest." He has shown his work at numerous exhibitions, including the inaugural Belfast Photo Festival and the Museum of Contemporary Photography's Midwest Photographers Project. His video "Highrise: Out My Window," an interactive documentary, won the 2011 International Digital Emmy for Non-Fiction. More information is available onhis website.
"Visualizing Urban Landscapes, Perceiving Urban Life" with David Schalliol begins at 2 p.m. in room 226 of Molinaro Hall and admission is free.
