“Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration,” a talk with writer and professor Nicole R. Fleetwood
The August Narrative Medicine Rounds are delighted to welcome Nicole R. Fleetwood, who is a writer, curator, and professor of American Studies and Art History at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. She will be speaking about her book Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration. Nigel Hatton, an associate professor of literature and philosophy and critical race and ethnic studies at the University of California, Merced, will moderate the virtual event, which will include a dialogue with Lisette Oblitas, a Columbia University Justice-in-Education scholar and visual artist featured in Marking Time, and staff member at the Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities.
Narrative Medicine Rounds are monthly rounds on the first Wednesday of the month during the academic year hosted by the Division of Narrative Medicine in the Department of Medical Humanities and Ethics at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. A recording of the Virtual Narrative Medicine rounds will be made available following the live session on the Narrative Medicine YouTube channel.
