Magic and Media: A CAA Conference Preview
Friday, January 20, 2012 - 6:30pm to Friday, January 20, 2012 - 8:30pm

The Art History Student Association invites you to "Magic and Media: A CAA Conference Preview" with presentations by Professors Sue Taylor and Rita Alves of the PSU Art Department.

"The Masked Magician: Enacting Archaic Desires," presented by Professor Sue Taylor
"The Freakshow & Transformation in Michael Jackson's Life and Work," presented by Professor Rita Alves

Join Professors Taylor and Alves as they preview their recent work. Both papers will be presented again in Los Angeles in February as part of the 100th Annual College Art Association Conference session titled "Magic and Media," which "investigates the relationship between magic and media in the age of new-media culture."

Each presentation will last roughly 20 minutes and will be followed by a brief discussion on how conference papers are submitted and selected. Light refreshments will be served after the event.
