Columbia Art History Graduate Colloquium
The departmental community is invited to submit presentation proposals for the Art History Graduate Colloquium's spring series. We are actively searching for participants across all geographic and historical subfields and from all members of the post-undergraduate community (Master's and PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty members). The Colloquium is a great opportunity to present work in progress and gain feedback from peers and faculty in the program.
The setting is informal, with your 20-30 minute presentation followed by a question-and-answer session. It's the perfect forum to test run a paper you're developing into a larger project such as an article, dissertation chapter, or conference talk. If you would like to submit a proposal or have further questions, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that the Colloquium is open only to affiliates of the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University and their guests.
All events are held in room 832 of Schermerhorn Hall unless otherwise noted.
