"Composing the Body via YouTube"

Jennifer Sano-Franchini

In this talk, I explore how the body is composed via YouTube through a study of representations of East Asian double eyelid surgery in online video. These videos--ranging from mass media excerpts and news reports, to journals of healing and recovery, to short lectures on surgeon techniques, to audience commentary--provide a rich range of perspectives rationalizing the technological modification of bodies.

Robert W. Park | November 21, 2012

The challenge of mapping the Canadian Arctic fascinated European explorers for centuries. Much of what most people know about the Arctic has been shaped by the tragic deaths of a few of those explorers, most famously all the member of Sir John Franklin's 1845 expedition. This presentation will discuss the history of European explorations of the Canadian Arctic and describe what recent archaeological research has revealed about the lives and deaths of these explorers, along with what still remains to be learned.
