Summary Margaret Morton, Fragile Dwelling [AMNESP House and Home in American Culture]
Description Please join the American and New England Studies Program for the second meeting of our Fall conversations series, House and Home in American Culture, on Thursday, October 14, at 5:30 p.m., in CAS 200. Our guest speaker will be Margaret Morton, Photographer and Professor in the School of Art, The Cooper Union, New York City. Professor Morton will speak on her photographs of the dwellings that homeless individuals assemble in public parks, vacant lots, and beneath the streets of New York City, in a talk entitled “Fragile Dwelling.” The theme of our year-long conversations series, House and Home in American Culture, is the American house and the concept of home. Over the course of this academic year we will hold a series of discussions on this theme based in different disciplines, including architecture, literature, and the visual arts. This event is free and open to the public. For further information contact Jessica Roscio, at jlroscio@bu.edu. This series is supported by the Boston University Humanities Foundation and the College of Arts and Sciences.
