Five College Consortium

Book Salon with Pooja Rangan on Immediations: The Humanitarian Impulse in Documentary

Wed, Mar 21 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Location: 
Five College Women's Studies, Five Coll Women's Studies Seminar Room

Join us for a discussion of Immediations: The Humanitarian Impulse in Documentary (Duke University Press) by Pooja Rangan (Assistant Professor of English in Film and Media Studies, Amherst College).

Endangered life is often used to justify humanitarian media intervention, but what if suffering humanity is both the fuel and outcome of such media representations? Pooja Rangan argues that this vicious circle is the result of immediation, a prevailing documentary ethos that seeks to render human suffering urgent and immediate at all costs. Rangan interrogates this ethos in films seeking to “give a voice to the voiceless,” an established method of validating the humanity of marginalized subjects, including children, refugees, autistics, and animals. 

Discussants: Jennifer Bajorek (Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature, Hampshire College), Amy Cox Hall (Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Amherst College), Jina Kim (Mount Holyoke Fellow/Visiting Lecturer in Critical Social Thought and Assistant Professor of English and the Study of Women and Gender, Smith College) and Bernadine Mellis (Five College Senior Lecturer in Film & Video Production)

Location: 
Art Museum, Art Museum Exhibit Hall

This tour, led by Molly Libbey ’18, Student Guide, will explore depictions of the female form, considering what elements of a woman’s life are represented in the museum space, how these pieces work to create a “female legacy,” and what important elements are left out. We will think together about the artistic decisions made by the artists, exploring how they inform and challenge larger societal understandings of youth and femininity.

Collective Visions Lecture Series: "The Truth May Not Be Out There: On Epistemic Cultures in the Digital Age"

Tue, Feb 27 2018 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm
Location: 
Kendade Hall, 305
In this talk, Fuyuki Kurasawa discusses the
emergence of evidence as a crucial site of cultural and
political struggle in digital public spaces. If expertise
is redefined and facts are contested in our ‘post-truth’
era, what kinds of epistemic cultures are social media
platforms creating and what kinds of controversies
thereby are being generated? To answer these
questions, the talk focuses on controversies
surrounding climate change and online abuse in order
to trace the social networks to which opposing sets of
digital actors are giving birth, as well as the moral
grammars and symbolic conventions that that they

employ online.
