“The Geneva Project,” a dance and multimedia performance inspired by Professor Laura Wexler’s Photogrammar project, was one of the highlights of the first annual conference hosted by Public Humanities at Yale, part of the American Studies Program.

The conference was held April 10–12, 2016 and inaugurated the creation of the North Eastern Public Humanities Consortium. “The Geneva Project” performance is one of two conference events open to the public free of charge; the other is a program of presentations about similar initiatives at partner institutions.
