First Tuesday Political Series presents:
Barbie Zelizer, author of About to Die (Oxford University Press), in conversation with Mark Crispin Miller
What equips an image to deliver the news? How much does the public need to know to make sense of images in the news? What do these images contribute to historical memory? About To Die addresses these questions by using images of imminent death as a litmus test for considering news imagery and visual meaning more broadly. The evening will be hosted by local professor, author and activist Mark Crispin Miller.
Barbie Zelizer is Raymond Williams Chair of Communication and the Director of the Scholars Program in Culture and Communication at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania.
She is the editor of several collections and the author of Remembering to Forget: Holocaust Memory through the Camera’s Eye and Covering the Body: The Kennedy Assassination, the Media, and the Shaping of Collective Memory.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
