The FSU Department of Art History will host our 34th Annual Graduate Student Symposium on October 7th & 8th in William Johnston Building room 2005. This annual event brings together graduate students from programs around the country for presentation and discussion of their research. These young scholars will present 20-minute papers, each followed by critical discussion with students, faculty, and visiting scholars. The keynote address is delivered by a visiting scholar as part of the Thursby Distinguished Scholars Lecture Series. This year’s keynote speaker is Barbara E. Mundy, Professor of Art History at Fordham University. Professor Mundy specializes in Pre-Columbian America, Sixteenth-century Mexico, Latin American art, and Cartography.

Paper sessions will take place on Friday afternoon, October 7th, and Saturday, October 8th, with each paper followed by critical discussion.  Professor Mundy will deliver the keynote address, “The Book Looks Back: Living Paper, Breathing Color, and Animate Material in the New World,” on Friday evening at 6 pm.  All talks will take place in room 2005 William Johnston Building and are open to the public.
