In the first hour, Halvard will present a text in connection to the subject MEVIT4895 "Conference attendance with presentation" (https://www.uio.no/studier/emner/hf/imk/MEVIT4895/index-eng.html). The presentation will be held in Norwegian.

 

PART II​ (14:15-15:00)

Emil Leth Meilvang: The Botany of Dreams: Man Ray's Herbarium
 
Description:
"I have written a chapter for my dissertation called "The Botany of Dreams: Man Ray’s Herbarium" that deals with Man Ray's flower photography of the early 1930s and how they connect with botany, fetishism, the photographic atlas, and psychoanalysis. A couple of weeks back, I decided to re-structure my dissertation, leaving out the chapter entirely. This in turn also means that I will try to turn the text into an article. I would therefore love to hear everybody's take on how I could improve it as a autonomous piece of research. It is indeed still very much work-in-progress. All comments are most welcome."
 

The Media Aesthetics research group at IMK, UiO, organizes a workshop on every first Friday of a month. The seminars serve as a space to discuss own projects, texts, research objects and works in progress. 

The Media Aesthetics workshop is open to everybody.
