This year the New England American Studies Association is highlighting the role of art in public culture in their upcoming conference: “The Arts and the Public.”  From October 1 – 3, an international, interdisciplinary group of students, scholars, artists, and arts administrators will present papers at the Massachusetts Historical Society in Boston.  Topics address visual and performing arts and highlight various themes such as gender, race, education, social justice, and public space.

As one of the participants, I will present “At the Edge of Nation: Lynching Memorials across America” on Saturday, October 2nd in panel 5.2 Memorials: Community and Commemoration.

For detailed information about the conference, see http://www.neasa.org/.
