Kaleidoscope Room with Jonah Freeman

Jonah Freeman give a slide lecture about the history and experience of The San San International, the mega-convention that overtakes the southern province of The San San metroplex every May. The basis of the lecture derives from journalist Elizabeth Stone's description of the event found in her seminal text In The Kaleidoscope Room. Freeman attended the convention two years in a row in an attempt to expand upon Stone's new journalistic investigations. The talk will be both an account of the trends, customs and rituals he witnessed as well as an exploration of the evolution of the exhibtion and its host city.
