HMS presenting at Visible Memories Conference

The Howling Mob Society will be presenting at the Public Memories Project/Visible Memories Conference at Syracuse University in New York this weekend. The conference promises to "explore the intersections between visual culture and memory studies with particular focus on the ways in which memories are manifested and experienced in visible, material, or spatial form."

HMS will be presenting on the panel "Interventions in Public Amnesia", alongside Fereshteh Toosi (New Millennium Studies, Columbia College Chicago: “Locative Sound: listening for environmental justice in Syracuse”), Dara Greenwald (Electronic Arts, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute: “Beyond Uncle Sam: Making Visible Resistant Histories”), and Olivia Robinson (Fiber and Material Studies, Syracuse University: “Spectres of the Non-monumental”) Joanna Spitzner (Department of Foundation, Syracuse University) will chair the panel on Saturday.
