An Afternoon with Janet Zandy

When: Thu., Oct. 17, 2 p.m. 2013

“Unfinished Stories” presents a parallel study of the lives and narrative photography of Hansel Mieth (1909–1998) and Marion Palfi (1907–1978). German-born émigrés who never met, they constructed remarkably similar photo narratives of unseen America. Zandy is emerita professor of English at RIT. She is the author of the award-winning “Hands: Physical Labor, Class, and Cultural Work” and other books on American working-class culture. Location: RIT Press, second floor of the Wallace Center

Price: Free.
