Description:
Speaker Series Event #2: A Panel on
Signs of Identity: Constructing Selves
with Images and Texts with Drs. Dora
Ramirez, Gautam Basu Thakur and
Dan Scott
Bringing together the English and Art
departments, three Boise State
professors will discuss the role of textual
and visual signs in the construction of
modern and contemporary concepts of
self. Dr. Ramirez’s research focuses on Chicano/a and gender identity in film and literature. Dr. Basu
Thakur’s research often works from Freudian and Lacanian frameworks to look at the creation of
postcolonial identities in texts. Dan Scott’s painted works “lure the viewer into a dialogue by evoking a
sensual world where constructed beauty is an element that mediates a conversation on the nature of
truth, or perhaps [his] truth.” Though from different fields and disciplines of research, each of these
scholars follows the thread of how our identities are formed.
