In Dialogue Series - Dialogue and metaphor: Avital Ronell and Vanessa Place

7:00 p.m.

In Dialogue series

Join us for a series of performative dialogues between experts in diverse fields in conjunction with the exhibition As it were… so to speak: A Museum Collection in dialogue with Barbara Bloom. Each evening concentrates on a different aspect of “dialogue,” pairing speakers demonstrating theory and practice. Unlike in traditional conversation the speakers do not engage with one another, instead each addresses the subject at hand and the audience members directly.

The Dialogue and metaphor program features Avital Ronell, Professor of German, Comparative Literature, and English at New York University, where she co-directs the Research in Trauma and Violence project with Vanessa Place, a writer and criminal appellate attorney. 

Sponsored by The Jewish Museum and the School of Media Studies.
