The Center for Documentary Studies is one of a number of campus cosponsors of an upcoming event organized by a Duke student group. The Untitled Identity Project states, “Myriad recent nationwide issues regarding identity and activism along with recent incidents terrorizing and targeting specific identity groups remain prominent in our media. Often we neglect to consider how these media representations affect people of different backgrounds, perspectives, and identities.” For the first in what the students hope will be an annual symposium—with future events dedicated to issues around race, color, and gender—join the Untitled Identity Project in welcoming Hollywood industry experts for a panel discussion on Jewish identity in today’s media. Free tickets are available through the Duke University Box Office.
