Notes on Some Forms of Repetition

Homay King
(Bryn Mawr College)

Keynote Address for the AHGSA 41st Annual Symposium:
Radical Ephemeralities

We are happy to announce that the keynote address for this year's Art History Graduate Students Association Symposium on April 22 will be delivered by Dr. Homay King, Associate Professor of Art History at Bryn Mawr College and editor of the journal Camera Obscura. The address and keynote response by UCSB's Dr. Jenni Sorkin will take place from 1:30 – 3:00 in UCSB's Davidson Library, Room 1312. For directions to the venue (located 1st Floor Mountain Side, adjacent to the Learning Commons), see the Library Map .

Dr. King's fields of specialty include American cinema, film theory, psychoanalytic theory, and feminist film theory and criticism. Her recent work on contemporary time-based art investigates the tensions between notions of the digital and the analog, and identifies within the virtual a unique generative potential. In her address on April 22, entitled "Notes on Some Forms of Repetition", she will present new work on a project that considers, among other topics, video game scripts as they appear in artist videos.
