As an accredited member of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), Lambda Pi Eta has active chapters at four-year colleges and universities worldwide.

Wednesday November 3, 4-5pm  On WebEx (please note new link)

Introduction by Adrienne Lee Atterberry, PhD

headshot of Gina GayleProfessor Gayle will take us on an engaging journey into the photographic documentation of Black life over six decades by both Professor Gayle and her father, the late James Gayle. There are recurring themes in the images, which mainstream media overlooked for one reason or another.
As we look at this project’s images, where does the sociological imagination fit?
And when talking about reality, whose reality is it?
Let’s spend an evening engaging in this conversation from a mass communications, fine art, and sociological point of view.

Gina Gayle, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in Visual and Multimedia Storytelling at Emerson College. She is a photojournalist, educator, and researcher earning her doctorate in Mass Communications from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Recent awards and fellowships include the Hearst Newspaper Journalism Fellowship and the NABJ Gulf Coast Fellowship.  More info at this link.

This event is hosted by Eddy at New Paltz and co-sponsored by the Photography Program / Art Department, the James H. Ottaway Sr. Visiting Professor of Journalism Program, the Digital Media and Journalism Department, The Sociology Department, and the Faculty Development Center.
