Andrew Lichtenstein and Cedric Nunn: Landscape | Memory | Trauma

School of Education 1120

Part of the center’s inaugural lecture series, photographers Cedric Nunn and Andrew Lichtenstein presented a joint lecture. Nunn’s latest work, Unsettled, documents the terrain of the eastern cape in South Africa, where colonial settlers and the Xhosa people fought wars lasting a century. Lichtenstein has pursued a similar project, “American Memory,” documenting neglected historical sites in the U.S. that evoke the destruction of indigenous peoples. In addition to the joint lecture, each photographer presented a seminar on his work. The event was co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences; the departments of African Studies, American Studies, Geography, and the Center for Research on Race, Ethnicity and Society.
