Murphy Lecture Series: Intersections of Identity: Expression, Exchange, and Hybridity DESCRIPTION:In the Osage language, Okesa means halfway. This word describes being in between points in time or place. In his lecture, Akers will discuss aspects of Osage history and culture and their role in forming his identity in a contemporary world. Through stories and visual images, he seeks to communicate his concerns about an evolving cultural history. What constitutes identity, and how do people navigate, form, and reform their sense of self? And how can the study of art and its history help us to consider the diverse identities expressed by visual culture and its creators? This series seeks to amplify the voices of scholars and artists whose work explores individual and collective identities as those intersect with notions of the body, dis/ability, gender, heritage, and race.
