Mapping Spectral Traces Symposium Guide 2010.
In: Mapping Spectral Traces Symposium 2010, October 2010, Virginia Tech University and Blacksburgh VA, USA.
Mapping Spectral Traces is an international and interdisciplinary
Virginia Tech Humanities Symposium that considers
how difficult pasts can be researched, documented,
represented, and animated in responsible and ethical
ways. Held at historic, educational, and artistic venues
in Blacksburg, Christiansburg, and Roanoke, the series
calls on Virginia Tech faculty and students, local community
members and leaders, and invited international artists
and scholars to engage with a larger public to consider
and develop socially engaged and creative research
practices that might enable us to become witnesses
of the geographies of loss that continue to structure local
and global worlds. The range of events and venues,
and forms of collaboration and conversation is intended
to allow participants to explore multi-sensual aesthetic
forms, alternative narratives, and activist topographies
that delve into terrains not usually observable on Cartesian
maps. International and local artists, scholars, and
practitioners will consider the following questions through
exhibitions, workshops, excursions, lectures, and forums.
