Empire in the Album: Soviet Travel Photography and Generational Memories of Socialism Today

February 27
12:00 pm
- 1:30 pm

Please join us for a talk with Olga Shevchenko, Professor of Sociology at Williams College.
This event is part of the Harriman at 70 Lecture Series.
This ‘show-and-tell” talk examines the ideological messages embedded in vernacular photographs preserved in private archived of former Soviet citizens. More specifically, it will focus on vernacular photography as a micro-technology of power, one that translates into everyday terms and naturalizes for subsequent generations such profoundly ideological constructs as empire, nation and citizenship.
