"Catastrophe's Apocalypse"

Copeland Colloquium Seminar Series "Permanent Catastrophe?"

November 11, 2013 - 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm (already occurred)
Clark House, Room 100

On Monday, Nov. 11, at 4:30 p.m. in Room 100 of Clark House, Joseph Masco, associate professor of anthropology and of the social sciences at the University of Chicago, will present a paper entitled “Catastrophe’s Apocalypse.” This is the second presentation in a series of seminars that will take place this year as part of the Copeland Colloquium Seminar Series “Permanent Catastrophe?”

Professor Masco’s paper mobilizes nuclear history, policy and visual culture to interrogate how catastrophe has been culturally coded and temporally framed in American culture since World War II.

To view a draft of the paper that will be presented at this seminar, please see the Copeland Colloquium website: https://www.amherst.edu/academiclife/colloquia/copeland_colloquium/descr...
