MARLBORO, VT -- Susan Jahoda, professor of fine arts at
the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, will present a lecture
based on two of seven chapters from her book in progress entitled,
"Frictional Contacts and Other Stories," at 4 p.m. Tuesday,

Jahoda will explore the complex ways in which memory, as an active process in the present, intervenes in the social, sexual, and historical constitution of identities. Her presentation includes slides and prints plus selections from her text, which she will read and/or perform.
At UMass, Jahoda teaches photography, as well as feminist and critical theory. She is the arts editor for "Rethinking Marxism" and an interdisciplinary artist/author whose work includes performance, installation, images, text, and photography. Jahoda has an M.F.A. in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design. She has been the recipient of grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts, and her work has been exhibited and published widely in both Europe and North America.
