2014 SPESC Conference Proposal: Engaging Possibilities

Panel / Forum

Presenters: Kalee Appleton (moderator), Deedra Baker, Rachael Banks, and Allison Jarek

Title: Identity, Memory, and Place: Texas Woman’s University Graduate Panel Discussion

Abstract:

The panel discussion, Identity, Memory, and Place: Texas Woman’s University Graduate Panel Discussion, will create dialogue regarding the use of photography as an avenue for the exploration of deeply rooted psychological subject matters. Panelists Kalee Appleton, Deedra Baker, Rachael Banks, and Allison Jarek create photographic artwork that explores the themes of identity, memory, and place. As graduate students at Texas Woman’s University, these artists each bring a new perspective from their own breadth of cultural and psychological experiences. The panelists will share their own work and a collection of inspirational materials via visual and literary sources. Within the panel, the artists will discuss the nature of their work both conceptually and by means of working methodologies, which vary from traditional analog photography to digital techniques.
