2022-2023: Visual Media, Justice & Human Rights

Please join us for the 2022-23 Mellon/ACLS Scholars and Society Speaker Series on visual media, justice and human rights.

The series will feature fascinating talks by eight international experts who work across the private and public sector, leveraging work with visual media into various domains. From human rights advocacy to archiving and preservation, the speakers will reflect on their career trajectories and highlight recent research projects. Together, we will discuss how doctoral training in the humanities and social sciences can kindle careers in publicly engaged scholarship within and outside the academy. The series will also include film screenings and an online career training session.

This speaker series is organized by Media Studies Assistant Professor Sandra Ristovska, and it is funded by her 2021 Mellon / ACLS Scholars and Society Fellowship. The series is hosted by the College of Media, Communication and Information at CU Boulder and supported by the Brakhage Center for Media Arts, the Center for Humanities and the Arts, the Department of English and the Department of Ethnic Studies
