Considering Indigenous Arts: The Connections of Ledger Art and Comics in Indigenous Visualities
November 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The history of ledger art, a particular form of visual art popularized by Native artists, has a close relationship with Florida. One of the largest collections of ledger art grew out of the imprisonment in the 1870s of Plain Indians prisoners of war at Fort Marion in St. Augustine. In this lecture, Dr. Jeremy Carnes considers the connections between this artwork and more contemporary Indigenous comics that have become popular the world over. This program is part of Native American Heritage Month programming.
Dr. Jeremy M. Carnes is a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Central Florida in the Department of Writing and Rhetoric. His research focuses on Indigenous visual art and rhetorical production. He is currently at work on his first book Sovereign Stories: The Visual Rhetorics of Self-Determination in Indigenous Comics. He also works closely with the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum on their digital archives and databases.
Registration is suggested but not required to attend.Funding for this program is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Historical Society of Central Florida. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
