Join the Franklin Humanities Institute and the Nasher Museum of Art for a panel discussion on Christian Marclay's Surround Sounds!

The Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University (FHI) will launch its fall programming with a panel discussion on a work of video art at the Nasher Museum. This faculty panel on Christian Marclay’s Surround Sounds is the first event in the FHI’s theme series World Arts, which will explore, in the broadest sense, the world-making potential of the arts and the ways in which worlds are imagined within them. To this end, Duke humanities faculty will think through this work by Marclay from various academic disciplines and perspectives: sound studies, graphic script and the relationship between image and text.

Our panelists are:

Eileen Chow, Visiting Associate Professor of Asian & Middle Eastern Studies

Rey Chow, Anne Firor Scott Professor and Chair of Literature

Joshua Gibson, Associate Professor of the Practice in Art, Art History, and Visual Studies; Director, Arts of the Moving Image

Kimberly Lamm, Associate Professor of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies

William Seaman, Professor of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies

John Supko, Associate Professor of Music
