Heather Bizon, 2018-19 Ann Kalla Visiting Professor, will present “Out of Nature: Everyday Mashups,” which focuses on the role of play in making room for that which is not possible in reality, allowing one to to slip into roles outside oneself, to take risks without consequences, and to challenge the codes and customs of one’s society.
