On-Going Events

Revolution and Ritual: The Photographs of Sara Castrejón, Graciela Iturbide, and Tatiana Parcero
Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery, Scripps College 
August 26, 2017 – January 7, 2018
Revolution and Ritual brings together works by representative figures of three generations of photographers in Mexico, their careers spanning 100 years. Castrejón, the least known of the three, was one of the few female photographers who documented the Mexican Revolution. Iturbide is known best for her photographs of the daily lives of Mexico’s indigenous cultures, while Parcero, a contemporary photographer, splices images of her own body with cosmological maps and pre-Columbian Aztec codices. By bringing their work into conversation, Revolution and Ritual will invite visitors to consider how photography has been transformed over the past century in Mexico and how it continues to respond to artists’ interest in representing present and past, self and other. The exhibition draws on Scripps College’s academic strength in feminist and gender studies and the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery’s expanding photography collection, with its special emphasis on women who have shaped the photographic field.

CONSPIRACY THEORY – CONSPIRACY FACT: Understanding a perplexing social phenomenon
Fall 2017, Benson Auditorium, Pitzer College
If recent news headlines are any indication, CONSPIRACY THEORY – CONSPIRACY FACT represent a prevalent theme in contemporary public discourse, be it theories that the attacks on 9/11/2001 were an “inside job,” that Volkswagen engineers conspired to disguise their vehicles’ emissions profiles, or that U.S. elections have been “rigged” or otherwise improperly influenced by foreign or domestic actors.  Further, the phenomenon is by no means new; attempting to explain events by appealing to nefarious collaborators working in secret behind the scenes has a long and rich history. Complicating this situation, part of being a historically-informed citizen involves recognizing that sometimes conspiracies do, in fact, occur (e.g., the Watergate conspiracy). Despite this, the academic study of conspiracy theories—what philosopher Matthew R.X. Dentith calls “conspiracy theory theory”—has only recently begun to blossom.  In Fall 2017, Pitzer hosts a distinguished series of investigators from fields as various as Philosophy, History, Political Science, Anthropology, Journalism & Media Studies will visit the Munroe Center for Social Inquiry to share what they have learned about conspiracies and conspiracy theories.
