Dr. Gabrielle Moser’s Walrus Talk online

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

If you didn’t get to see Dr. Gabrielle Moser’s presentation at last month’s sold-out Walrus Talks, you can listen to her online.

The talk is available on CBC’s The Next 150 podcast (episode 11) and on YouTube.

On May 31, The Walrus Talk “Conversations about Canada: We Desire a Better Country” featured Dr. Moser, alongside author Margaret Atwood, activist Syrus Marcus Ware and singer/actor Tom Jackson, among other speakers. It was the last of the talks on a cross-country tour marking the anniversary of Confederation.

Dr. Moser, adjunct professor in art history FOLAS/IS, presented an excerpt from her research project, “Picturing race and citizenship: photography and belonging in the US and Canada, 1900-1948.” The project aims to build a visual vocabulary of citizenship by analyzing how photographers, subjects, and viewers used the camera to make claims for belonging in the United States and Canada in the first half of the twentieth century.

Dr. Moser held the position of Fulbright Visiting Scholar in the department of Modern Culture and Media at Brown University in the winter 2017 semester.
