University of Oregon welcomes Brown University Professor Tina M. Campt to speak as part of this year’s Lorwin Lecture series.

Campt is the Owen F. Walker Professor of Humanities and Professor of Modern Culture and Media. She is a founding member of the Practicing Refusal Collective. Her most recent book, Listening to Images (2017), explores a way of listening closely to photography, engaging with lost archives of historically dismissed photographs of black subjects taken throughout the black diaspora. She is the recipient of numerous research grants and fellowships and serves as Research Associate at the Visual Identities in Art and Design at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa.

The event is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Women in Society and the College of Design. The Lorwin Lectureship on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties is funded by a gift from Val and Madge Lorwin to the University of Oregon College of Arts and Sciences and School of Law.
