About Hole in the Head: A Life Revealed

This award-winning documentary tells the shocking, inspiring and extraordinary life story of Vertus Hardiman. In the 1920s, Hardiman and nine other young children in Lyles Station, Indiana, were severely irradiated during a horrifying medical experiment. Hole in the Head draws attention to the reticently discussed history of human experimentation in the United States and raises questions about abuses that occurred in the name of research. The film is also a testament to the power of the human spirit and the ability to endure without anger in the face of injustice.

Organized by Karen D. Lincoln (Social Work).
Co-sponsored by the USC Edward R. Roybal Institute on Aging.

About Visions and Voices: The USC Arts & Humanities Initiative

Visions and Voices is a university-wide arts and humanities initiative that is unparalleled in higher education. The initiative was established by USC President C. L. Max Nikias during his tenure as provost in order to fulfill the goals set forth in USC's strategic plan; to communicate USC's core values to students; and to affirm the human spirit. Emphasizing the university's commitment to interdisciplinary approaches, the initiative features a spectacular array of events conceived and organized by faculty and schools throughout the university. The series includes theatrical productions, music and dance performances, conferences, lectures, film screenings and many other special events both on and off campus. Each program invites students to dialogue and interact with artists, writers, professors and special guests. These interactions provide a dynamic experience of the arts and humanities and encourage active exploration of USC's core values, including freedom of inquiry and expression, team spirit, appreciation of diversity, commitment to serving one's community, entrepreneurial spirit, informed risk-taking, ethical conduct and the search for truth.
