Marianne Hirsch of Columbia University and Leo Spitzer, the Kathe Tappe Vernon Professor of History emeritus, will present "School Pictures and Their Afterlives." The lecture examines how contemporary artists have capitalized on the emotional life of class photographs and exposed their memorial and political power. 

After the lecture, President James Wright and Susan DeBevoise Wright will lead a dedication and groundbreaking ceremony for the new Zantop Garden.

Professor Silvia Spitta, chair of the Program in Comparative Literature, says, "The Zantop Garden honors the lives and work of two of our beloved colleagues. We hope it will be a space to hold classes and for people to gather and enjoy the New England outdoors that Susanne and Half Zantop loved so much."
