Call for Papers: Art History Graduate Student Lecture Series
This spring, MASO hosted its first Graduate Student Lecture Series. Over the course of six evenings during the semester, nine students presented papers on a wide array of topics, ranging from Aaron Siskind and the sublime to art in the age of digital reproduction. Two professors also presented: Professor William Agee spoke on the lasting influence of Matisse’s The Red Studio (1911), and Professor Kim de Beaumont spoke on Gabriel de Saint-Aubin’s 18th century drawings of the Concert Spirituel in Paris. Thanks to the presenters’ talented work and the support of their Hunter colleagues who attended, the series was a success!
MASO is now planning for next semester and our next Graduate Student Lecture Series. We welcome paper proposals from MA and MFA students. Presentations are to be no longer than twenty minutes and may cover any aspect of your work. A brief Q&A will follow each talk. Examples of papers include, but are not limited to:
· Term papers
· Thesis chapters
· Articles intended for publication
Proposals should include a presentation title, a 300-word abstract, and your Hunter status (MA student, MFA student). Please submit to firstname.lastname@example.org, with MASO lecture series proposal in the subject line. Submissions will be accepted until August 26, 2014. Participants will be notified by September 2 if they are selected to participate.
The fall 2014 Graduate Student Lecture Series will be held in Zabar Art Library on Wednesday evenings, beginning September 17.
