9am
DML 241 - USC Sidney Harman Academy for Polymathic Study

The NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY, HUNTINGTON-USC INSTITUTE ON CALIFORNIA AND THE WEST, USC LIBRARIES COLLECTIONS CONVERGENCE INITIATIVE, and HARMAN ACADEMY FOR POLYMATHIC STUDY present a three-part conference exploring Los Angeles after dark. Topics will include the noir landscapes of films and novels, nocturnal creatures, the astronomy of our evening skies, and more. What is it about Los Angeles that has so captivated writers and filmmakers, and what can we learn when we throw shade on our famed sunshine to investigate the city in darkness? L.A. doesn’t sleep at night, so join us for two evenings and a day-long symposium as we unmask our city after sunset.
