LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Jodi Varon, professor of English, shares a meditation on violence, absence and shrines during the next colloquium Thursday, March 10 at Eastern Oregon University.
“Your Eye Will Be My Window: Shrines, History and Invisibility” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. Light refreshments will be served and the presentation will also be streamed live at livestream.com/eou/colloquium.
Varon will discuss the community response to a recent unsolved murder in the small German town of Eglosheim. The small, temporary, makeshift shrine erected by family members and friends to mark the death of Nadine Ertugrul is contrasted with the evolution in meaning of a war memorial in Berlin and the Stolpersteine (Stumble-Stones) project, which memorializes victims of Nazi aggression.
