Seeing Cultures: Comparative Ways of Seeing in Art, Language, and Approaches to Health

Art Art
Join the Alumni Association, in partnership with the U-M Museum of Art (UMMA), for this online event on Wednesday, May 26, at 7 p.m. ET, featuring artworks from the museum’s collection of East Asian art. This lecture will explore how some cultures present the concept of “self” within art and how this approach has an effect on their reactions to the pandemic.

Twila Tardif, Professor of Psychology, and Kenneth G. Lieberthal and Richard H. Rogel Professor of Chinese Studies, will discuss her research on language development in English and Chinese and share results from a recent global study she conducted on the factors affecting social distancing behaviors during COVID-19. Professor Tardif and the curators at UMMA will also explore how similar cultural themes are present in art, and how this gives us insight into how concepts of “self” and “other” effect cultural and regional differences in public health events such as the current pandemic.
