    Join us in Midway’s library on Tuesday, May 3rd at 7pm for a lecture by renowned anthropologist Barbara Glowczewski. Her lecture will focus on Indigenous peoples and ethico-aesthetic practices of art-making and activism as well as cultural modes of preservation.

    Barbara Glowczewski is a professorial researcher at The French Scientific Research Center, CNRS, member of the Laboratory of Social Anthropology at the College de France. Glowczewski has spent the past 35 years dedicating her work to advocating for Australian Aboriginal creativity employing a variety of artistic, cinematic and narrative modes of exploration. Her book Desert Dreamers, published by Univocal, is an ethnographic adventure exploring the Warlpiri and their cultural practices of “the dreaming” in relation to their societal laws, ritual art, and connection with the cosmos.

    Support for this lecture is provided by University of Minnesota’s Anthropology Department, Department of Cultural Studies, The Institute for Global Studies, and The Imagine Fund as well as Univocal Publishing and Midway Contemporary Art.
