Working with Emotions in Architectural History
Dr. Keith Bresnahan

November 19, 2018
3:00pm-4:00pm
205 Richmond St. West Room 420

This talk describes a body of work developed during my sabbatical in 2016-17, including fellowships in Berlin and southern France. 

It explores my engagement with new research in the history of emotions, and my attempt to bring this into conversation with architectural history.

 

Traces and Talismans: Reflections on Witnessing and the Performing of Memory
Dr. Dot Tuer

November 19, 2018
4:00pm-5:00pm
205 Richmond St. West Room 420

This talk addresses site specific research that I undertook for my half sabbatical in the winter/spring of 2016. During this time, I visited the Guaraní community of Loreto in Corrientes, Argentina, to witness the procession of their personal saints; traveled to Rosario, Argentina with my partner to witness his return to a clandestine torture and extermination centre, now a Space of Memory; and accompanied a collective of artists to the Atacama Desert in Chile to witness a performance about the disappeared of Pinochet’s regime of terror. How witnessing as a form of research illuminates the intersections of history and haunting, materiality and mourning will be the focus on my reflections.
