A guide to upcoming events in the humanities and social sciences at Temple University, updated weekly during the academic year.

Reconstructing the View: Visualizing Time, Place, and the Collective Sublime
This exhibition includes examples of large scale panoramas that respond to icons of landscape and culture in places such as the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and Northern California. Byron Wolfe uses photography and a diverse range of digital tools and visualizations to reflect on broader notions of culture, the passage of time, landscape, and the construction of perception. The resulting work is a combination of scholarly and historic research, creative expression, and personal narrative.

Ben Wilson, American Painter
