Tuesday, November 19, 2013, 12:00 noon Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room, Harriman Institute 1219 International Affairs Building Columbia University 420 West 118th Street, New York
Please join the Harriman Institute for a lecture by Edward Kasinec.
In his presentation, Edward Kasinec, a 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 photographic 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’ .
