OpenDocLab Lunch Series: Vince Brown
Wednesday, December 11, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Brown will present an animated map that explores the spatial dynamics of the Jamaican slave revolt of 1760-1761. He will discuss his aesthetic approach to this subaltern history, highlighting what can be discovered when historians shift their emphasis from historical recovery to rigorous and responsible creativity. Finally, he asks for a deeper recognition that the archive is not only the records bequeathed to us by the past, it is also the tools we use to explore it, the vision that allows us to see its traces, and the design decisions that communicate our sense of history’s possibilities.
