Vanita Seth: “Faces of the Self”
February 8, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
The Cultural Studies Colloquium Series Presents:
Associate Professor, Politics, UCSC
“Faces of the Self”
The French ban on the burqa and niqab is only one example of the primacy accorded the face in modern western societies. Professor Seth here argues that the fortunes of the face are tied to the birth of modern individuality, and that the face is both the grounds and the reflection of the modern expressive self.
The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors. The sessions consist of a 30-40 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15 PM. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center provides coffee, tea, and cookies.
