Presentation: Eye Tracking, Visual Attention, and the Psychology of Media Message Processing

The study of how consumers process mediated message has typically related message characteristics to post-exposure outcomes, with much less consideration of what happens during message processing. Eye tracking offers ways to unobtrusively measure and calculate visual attention measures that can explain how message characteristics, individual differences, and situational factors lead to different persuasive or knowledge outcomes. This talk will describe the strengths, limitations, and numerous applications of eye tracking for examining contemporary problems and building theory in mass communication.

Dalí and the Surrealist Movement

When: 
Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 6:00pm

Museum Lecture
William Jeffett, Chief Curator of Exhibitions, The Dalí Museum, St. Petersburg, FL

The period covered in the Meadows Museum’s current exhibition, Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929-1936, is considered a time when Salvador Dalí painted his finest works. Through an examination of the early exhibitions of Surrealist art that the Catalan painter participated in during these eight years, this lecture will provide an overview of Dalí’s work and his role within the Surrealist movement in Paris. Dalí would remain a member of the Surrealist group until 1939 when he had a final rupture with its leader, André Breton.

Salvador Dalí’s Surrealism of the Tiny

When: 
Thursday, October 4, 2018 - 6:00pm

Roger Rothman, Samuel H. Kress Professor of Art History, Bucknell University

Rothman’s lecture will explore Dalí’s fascination with all things tiny – both the literally tiny (ants, sewing needles, breadcrumbs, blackheads) and the metaphorically tiny (the trivial, the weak, the superficial, the anachronistic). Dalí has long been a controversial figure among scholars of modern art and Rothman’s lecture will examine the ways in which Dalí’s “tininess” courted such controversy.
