Zachary Slanger and Grethen Spiegel presented with 2013 Academic Achievement Award

5:41 PM

At Pratt's Convocation ceremony on Monday, seniors Zachary Slanger and Gretchen Spiegel were presented with the Department of Social Science & Cultural Studies Academic Achievement Award for their consistently outstanding academic work during their four years in the Critical & Visual Studies major.  

Zachary's senior thesis project, Perverse Strategies, examined the notion of the perverse, especially in relation to the work of the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan.  In Living in Exile: On Nostalgia and the Ethics of Remembrance, Gretchen explored the ethical dimensions and quandaries of memory, identity and nostalgia as both active individual and collective practice as well as a potentially reactionary social force.


Appropriately perverse and nostalgic image?
