Created 21 September 2010; Published 29 November 2010

    LTC: On A Piece of Chalk

    In Norwich, England, in 1868, noted advocate of liberal arts education Thomas Henry Huxley began a lecture by drawing attention to a piece of chalk and arguing that modern evidentiary reason reveals the interconnections among all things. To this day, the idea of interconnectedness continues to mark the human understanding fostered by a liberal arts education.

    LTC: Panoramic Images and Panoramic Consciousness

    Thanks to digital photography, panoramic photographs have become popular in the last decade. This talk explores the remarkably radical esthetics of the panorama as an image form and traces its history back to the late 18th century. It argues that “panoramic consciousness”—the aspiration to immerse oneself in an image—may be one of the central driving forces in the evolution of visual media.
