Salon Description

Historic Churches as Symbols and the Meanings of Restoration

Author Frank Graziano shares research on the world of New Mexico’s historic stone and adobe churches and the role these structures play in communities today. Based on interpretive ethnographic fieldwork, his work demonstrates how a few committed mayordomos (church caretakers) or entire communities rallying around restoration efforts can influence the future of culturally relevant historic locations.

Frank Graziano is John D. MacArthur Professor of Hispanic Studies, Emeritus, Connecticut College and author of Historic Churches of New Mexico Today.

Where Wind Works: Documenting US and European Wind Turbines and Correlating Changes to the Landscape

Since 2011, photographer Bryan Steiff has tracked developments and uses of energy-generating wind turbines. From small applications and individual residential use to massive commercial wind farms, visualizing the current state of wind-use invites a dialogue around practicality, community impacts, environmental concerns, and political implications of this particular energy source.

Steiff says, “these dramatic symbols of renewable resources and green technology vividly evidence the hand of man on the landscape in a way not seen since the massive World War II infrastructure development in American and rebuilding of post-war Europe.”

Bryan Steiff is a photographer and author. Learn more about his Wind series here.
