Protest Art during the Great Depression Friday, February 2, 2018 8:30am-4:00pm CSCC Conference Center Breakfast and lunch included $25.00 registration fee The Humanities department at Columbus State Community College presents the first annual American Crossroads symposium on Friday, February 2, 2018. This year’s symposium focuses on art and protest during the Great Depression, including discussions about the visual and performing arts, literature, and music that in some way critically addressed the political, social, and/or economic climate of the 1930s as well as broader questions of what constitutes protest in the arts or whether such works have renewed relevance given today’s political climate. The program includes a morning and afternoon session; each session will feature two scholarly presentations followed by a moderated discussion session with the audience and presenters. The symposium presents an excellent professional development opportunity, and fulfills 7.5 CEU hours. Parking is free, and a continental breakfast and buffet lunch is included in the $25.00 registration fee. Teachers will also receive resources for teaching and talking about protest art in the classroom, including primary and secondary sources. Questions can be sent to Jennifer Nardone: email@example.com.
