Savage Man-eaters of New Guinea

"fierce as they look, they are usually kind to their children…. Selfishness was not one of the vices of these people as it commonly is among more civilized people." – from the accompanying text on reverse of card.

Representing the Other: Stereographs as Popular Ethnography

Marilyn Morton will present an illustrated lecture based on her studies of ethnocentricity in stereoviews. Her 3-D slide show is part of an ongoing project to define the impact of stereoviews in media history. She was recently awarded a PhD from Emory University for her dissertation "The Social Stereoscope: Issues in American Cultural History." An active stereo photographer herself, Dr. Morton is co-founder of the Atlanta Stereographic Association, and an officer in the International Stereoscopic Union. She currently teaches at the Atlanta College of Art.

After her talk there will be some announcements, then our usual informal show-and-tell when members share there own work in viewers or on bulletin boards around the room.


Free and open to the public
