The Humanities and Everyday Life

Please join us on Friday, April 13, at 2 pm in Wilson 142 for an event hosted by the Institute for Humanities and Global Cultures Public Humanities Lab. As part of our larger conversation on “The Humanities and Everyday Life," PhD students Benjamín Romero Salado and Catherine Addington will participate in the afternoon’s first panel, “Inflammatory Objects: What We Keep and Why.”
The panel and discussion “will explore the public and private lives of racially and/or politically charged objects, as well as the practices surrounding their collection, curation, and exhibition.” Catherine will present on Francisco Ximénez’s 1701 manuscript of the Popol Vuh, and Benjamín will present on Carmen Martín Gaite’s posthumously published journal, Vision of New York.
