Lunchtime Lecture: “Idea and Form: Indigenous Interventions in Film and Media Arts”

Wednesday, 3 December 2014, 12:15 p.m.

   
Each semester, we showcase a Carleton academic whose research interests complements one of our current exhibitions, and invite them to give a talk on their research.
 
In “Idea and Form,” Miranda Brady explores the ways in which Indigenous filmmakers and media artists use the process of remediation to interrogate the relationship between Indigenous identity and media texts, forms, and practices. Looking to examples from artists showcasing their works at the imagineNative (iN) Film and Media Arts Festival and putting them in conversation with the work of Haida/Quebecois artist Raymond Boisjoly, Brady points to the reflexive and creative repurposing of media as an intervention into historical omissions and ontologies that delegitimize Indigenous ways of knowing.
 
Bring your lunch, the gallery will provide coffee and tea, and we’ll all learn something new!
 
Miranda J. Brady is an Associate Professor in the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University and is the author and co-author of numerous articles on Indigenous identity and cultural institutions. Indigenous Interventions, her co-authored book with John Medicine Horse Kelly, is under contract with UBC Press.

DOUBLE MAJOR// December Edition: War Art + Addictive Behaviours

Tuesday, 9 December 2014, 7:00 p.m.

 
Join us for the fourth installment of the year, where we’ll hear from two passionate experts, each speaking for 20 minutes about their subject, after which there will be a Q&A addressing both topics. One speaker is from the Ottawa-Gatineau community, and one is from the Carleton community. DOUBLE MAJOR is a fun and friendly way to stimulate discussion of seemingly disparate topics, and to make new connections between people and ideas.
