Communication professor presents project

Leah Bedrosian Peterson, assistant professor of communication at Lycoming College, will be presenting her project "Erasure" at 33 East in Williamsport, Pa, Oct. 1 from 6-9 p.m. The project, on display through Oct. 13, is comprised of photographs and videos that were taken during Peterson's travels to South East Asia in summer 2010. Peterson documented the villages and cities of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam during a two-month period. The title, "Erasure," references the changes in the local traditional culture and the changes to the landscape as these third-world nations are being influenced by Western culture.
