Lecture examines war photography

How can 2,000 photographs from hundreds of soldiers all look alike? Dr. Jeff Kleiman explores an unspoken testimony that went beyond the experience of war in the University of Wisconsin-Marshfield/Wood County Spring Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Tuesday with his lecture, "War photography on the Eastern Front."

Kleiman, professor of history at UW-M/WC, will share his findings from his archival research in Berlin, Germany, that led him to 10,000 photographs spanning 1,200 miles of the military front across three years of warfare. The context of the snapshots and albums often is missing, but can be inferred in many and, in rare instances, tracked down to a specific time and place. "By exploring these snapshots, individually and in albums, we may open the door to our own perception and understanding of war at a grassroots level," Kleiman said.

This lecture will be in Room 135 of UW-Marshfield/Wood County, 2000 W. Fifth St., Marshfield. Everyone is welcome to attend, the lecture is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served. Go to www.marshfield.uwc.edu for the dates and topics of the 2013 UW Spring Lecture Series.
