  • COD to Host Series of ‘ART21’ Documentaries Screenings in October Oct 3, 2014 5:11 PM
    College of DuPage will host a series of four free pre-screening events for the PBS series ART21 throughout the month of October. All screenings will be held on Thursdays at 2 p.m. in the McAninch Arts Center, Room 153, on the College’s main campus, 425 Fawell Blvd., in Glen Ellyn. These screenings are free and open to the public. Presented in partnership with Americans for the Arts, the National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture and the YMCA, ART21 Access ‘14 is an international free screening initiative created to increase knowledge of contemporary art, spark dialogue, and inspire creative thinking through hundreds of free public screenings and events. Since premiering in 2001, ART21 has established itself as the preeminent chronicler of contemporary art and artists through its Peabody Award-winning biennial television series, “Art in the Twenty-First Century.” The program is now broadcast in more than 50 countries worldwide and is the only series on U.S. television to focus exclusively on contemporary visual art and artists. Following is a schedule of upcoming screenings: Thursday, Oct. 9, Episode 1: “Investigation.” Artists Leonardo Drew, Thomas Hirschhorn and Graciela Iturbide use their practices as tools for personal and intellectual discovery, simultaneously documenting and producing new realities in the process. Thursday, Oct. 16, Episode 2: “Secrets.” Artists Elliot Hundley, Trevor Paglen and Arlene Shechet artists share some of the secrets that are intrinsic to their work. Thursday, Oct. 23, Episode 3: “Legacy.” Artists Tania Bruguera, Abraham Cruzvillegas and Wolfgang Laib use life experiences and family heritage to explore new aesthetic terrain. Thursday, Oct. 30, Episode 4: “Fiction.” Artists Omer Fast, Katharina Grosse and Joan Jonas explore the virtues of ambiguity, mix genres, and merge aesthetic disciplines to discern not simply what stories mean, but how and why they come to have meaning. For more information on these free screenings, please contact COD Art History Professor David Ouellette at (630) 942-2586 or ouelletted@cod.edu. Click here for more information on ART21.

  • History of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome at Bloomingdale Public Library Oct 3, 2014 5:06 PM
    Mark Micale, Associate Professor of History and the History of Medicine at University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and author of Hysterical Men: the Hidden History of Male Nervous Illness, will appear at Bloomingdale Public Library on Monday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m. to examine the cultural history of post-traumatic stress disorder in a lecture called Hysterical Men: From Shell Shock to PTSD. There have been many names for post-traumatic stress disorder over the years, but trauma after battle has always been with us. During the Civil War, post-traumatic stress disorder was referred to as Soldier’s Heart, with symptoms such as chest-thumping, anxiety, and breathlessness. During World War I, the term used to describe this disorder was shell shock. Not only have the terms used to describe this illness evolved over the years, but so has society’s response to this prevalent disorder. “We think this is an important issue for many members of the community, and we are looking forward to hosting Professor Micale so he can shed some light on the history of PTSD and society’s reaction to it.” said Julie Keating, Adult Services Department Head at Bloomingdale Public Library. This lecture is part of a month-long community reading event called On the Same Page. Bloomingdale Public Library, Roselle Public Library, and Itasca Community Library annually invite all community members to read the same book and take part in a month of book discussions, lectures, concerts, and programs revolving around the themes of the book. This year’s choice is The Light between Oceans by M. L. Stedman. The book, set in post-World War I Australia, explores the consequences of the choices we make. To register for this program, call 630-924-2733. More information about the programs in this series can be found at www.mybpl.org.
