12:00pm
Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room (1219 IAB)
Please join the Harriman Institute for a lecture by Edward Kasinec (Harriman Institute).
 
In his presentation, Edward Kasinec, curator, historian of Slavic and East European cultures, and son of  interwar Carpatho-Rusyn immigrants, considers the legacy of the Czech official, editor, translator and artist, Rudolf  Hulka (d. l961).
 
While Hulka’s expansive and recently uncovered legacy covers several parts of Europe and North Africa, Kasinec’s heavily illustrated presentation will focus on and ‘situate’  those color and hand-colorized photographic images that depict Sub-Carpathian Rus’ in the Twenties of the last century. Hulka’s images represent a marvelous visual evocation of the land and varied peoples, material and sacred culture of Sub-Carpathian Rus’ .
