Robert Hirsch, "World in a Jar: War & Trauma – An Ethical Tale” presentation

07:00 PM to 08:00 PM, October 26, 2017

College Union Bldg., Oak Room (2nd Floor)

Robert Hirsch will deliver his World in a Jar: War & Trauma An Ethical Tale presentation. It utilizes the camera, he says, to photographically re-envision our collective societal memory involving loss, popular culture, religion, tragedy, and the nature of evil. Utilizing the Holocaust as an historic anchor, the project evolved out of my response to the events of 9/11, Hirsch said. My report on the human condition is an open-ended, wordless story that covers such momentous issues as ethnic violence, genocide, racism, religious intolerance, war, and the suffering these behaviors spawn. This event is free and open to the public.
