The Sandeen Lecture in the Humanities

Join us on Monday, December 12th, at 4 pm, in Coe Library 506.

Dr. Breezy Taggart, Professor at the Honors College
"Reclaiming Mental Health Representations through Contemporary Art."

Dr. Taggart will explore the role contemporary art can play in transforming representations of mental health and illness. This lecture will also be live on zoom:

The Sandeen Lecture in the Humanities is named for Dr. Eric Sandeen, the founding director, and now director emeritus, of the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research. The lecture is co-sponsored by the humanities research institute and the Wyoming Humanities Council.

Each year, the faculty fellows in the cohort of the institute's Humanities Research Group vote to decide which fellow will deliver the lecture, therefore to be chosen for it is a particular honor, showing the respect of one's peers and showcasing some of the best humanities research by UW faculty.

There will be a catered reception in the Cooper House after the lecture. Can't make it? Be sure to follow along on our YouTube channel to watch the recording.

Don't forget, create a reminder for this event with Facebook!
