In Dr. Rives's first talk, "Plastics: Henry Tonks, Harold Gillies, and the Future Face," she will be extending her work on prosopopoeia to discuss Henry Tonks's pastels of facially injured WWI soldiers and other items from the Harold Gillies led plastic surgery unity at Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup. She is interested in the ethics of constructing or projecting a "future face" for a subject whose personhood has in many ways been obliterated and how archival work might also be theoretical.
