Seminar 2016-17

This year the seminar focused its readings on an investigation of the varied approaches to scholarly writing. In addition to several readings dedicated to this topic, the seminar also took advantage of local events that drove discussion around artist’s work and exhibitions. Simultaneously, several members were also involved with the Family Camera Network Project and its related exhibition and conference, which was funded by SSHRC and led by Primary Investigator, Thy Phu.
