The symposium will commence at 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 13, with a panel on "History and Heritage Studies." Various media and panel presentations will continue throughout the afternoon as will screenings of films that will be coordinated in conjunction with the Delta Flix Film and Media Festival.
Student productions will be shown at the event as filmmakers will introduce their films and answer questions about their creative projects. Wednesday’s events conclude with a special screening of the feature film “I’m Not There” in the Mockingbird Room. The film is especially relevant as it sets the stage for Saturday’s “Dylan Day” activities.
The event is sponsored by A-State’s Department of English, Philosophy and World Languages with additional on-campus support, including a grant from the American Folklore Society. Most events will take place in the Mockingbird Room on the third floor of the Reng Student Union (GPS: 101 North Caraway Road).
