55th Annual Faculty Research Lecture featuring Professor Jennifer Gonzalez

The UC Santa Cruz Academic Senate is delighted to invite you to the 55th Annual Faculty Research Lecture



Professor Jennifer González,

Department of History of Art and Visual Culture

 silent speech, migratory gesture

7:00 PM

Climate change, economic inequality and war have caused over 280 million people to migrate from their country of origin in just the last few decades. In hauntingly poetic and pointedly activist works, contemporary artists explore the geopolitics of migration. Bodies become the surface for writing, gestures evolve into map making, language comes under erasure. Producing a kind of silent speech, artists track tensions of visibility and invisibility, displacement and transnational movement in the lives of everyday migrants.


This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:45 p.m.

Parking permits will be available for purchase for $5 in the Performing Arts lot. Please follow the event signage at the base of campus and a parking attendant will assist you.

The lecture will be held in person and also available to view via livestream.
