Bruce Jackson Honored by UB Humanities Institute

Two weeks ago, our cover featured a color photograph taken by Jack Delano for the Farm Security Administration in 1941. The photo is part of an exhibit at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery called Full Color Depression: First Kodachromes from America’s Heartland, curated by Bruce Jackson, SUNY Distinguished Professor and the James Agee Professor of American Culture at the University at Buffalo.

On Friday, November 4, UB’s Humanities Institute will honor Jackson at its 2011 Scholar Session, an annual event in which the work of a UB scholar is presented to the community. Friday’s event takes place in the auditorium at the Albright-Knox, and begins at 7pm. Jackson will talk about the remarkable Depression-era photos in the exhibit, as well as past projects—which include groundbreaking work in photos, film, and print in southern prisons and death rows—and present projects, which include a photo series on Buffalo’s industrial legacies and an upcoming book with his wife, UB professor Diane Christian, called In This Timeless Time: Living and Dying on Death Row in America.
