Faculty Activities: John Tagg in Tel Aviv

Professor John Tagg has just returned from a Distinguished Visiting Faculty appointment in the Yolanda and David Katz Faculty of Arts at Tel Aviv University in Israel. During his time at the university, he taught an intensive seminar on photograph history and theory, delivered a well-attended public lecture, held an extensive schedule of meetings with scholars, curators, artists and activists, and was delighted to have the opportunity to catch up with some Binghamton people too: Rotem Rozental (PhD candidate in Art History), Na’ama Klorman-Eraqi (PhD 2013) and Ilana Abend-David (MA 1995). Following Tagg’s visit, a feature article by Shany Littman is scheduled to appear in the Friday edition Arts & Leisure section of Haaretz.
