Material Evidence, Visible Knowledge
April 30 – May 1, USC
THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 2-5:30PM
FRIDAY, MAY 1, 9AM-4:15PM
USC Doheny Memorial Library,
Academy for Polymathic Study
This conference examines the question of material evidence and the ways that it intersects with, opposes, and/or redefines visual knowledge. Scholars will address how the technical examination of objects and the use of both new and old tools—from microscopy, chemistry, and photo enlargement to digital manipulation—have rendered new knowledge.
