SOU Campus Theme on Revolution: Creative Arts and Power in the 21st Century

(Ashland, Ore.) — Southern Oregon University’s Campus Theme series on Revolution continues this week with a panel discussion exploring the relationship between the creative arts and power. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Miles Inada, Professor of Art and Emerging Media at SOU, who will be joined by other SOU faculty in the creative arts. The event will be held Wednesday, February 4, at 7 p.m. in the Meese Auditorium inside the Art Building on the SOU campus.
Rapidly changing forces of finance and technology are revolutionizing the way in which people across the globe understand and interact with each other and the world. The panel will address questions on how these changes impact the role and work of contemporary creative artists and how their work is made, seen, and understood by the public.
The SOU Campus Theme Series promotes intellectually stimulating and healthy conversations on a different theme each year, creating opportunities for the campus and community to engage in discussions across disciplines on a topic important to us all. The series will continue with additional lectures and panel discussions throughout the year. All campus theme events are free and open to the public.
Panelists joining Dr. Inada for Thursday’s presenation include: David Bithell, Professor, Art & Emerging Media; Melissa Geppert, Assistant Professor, Art & Art History; Robert Arellano, Professor, Creative Writing & Emerging Media
