Dr. Heide Fehrenbach (Northern Illinois University)
University of Lethbridg | L1060
On social media and in our newsfeeds and mailboxes, heart-rending images of needy or suffering children confront us on a daily basis. They seek to grab our attention, prick our moral conscience, stimulate empathy and political action, or open our wallets for a good cause. This talk considers the history of humanitarianism through the camera lens and its focus on the child. History suggests that while depictions of children-in-need may appear static and predictable, they have been deployed in various ways for a surprising array of political agendas for more than a century.

9 p.m. | Trivia Night at the Zoo
