The FSU Art History faculty and graduate students invite students currently working toward an M.A. or a Ph.D. to submit abstracts of papers for presentation at our Thirty-Second Annual Art History Graduate Student Symposium, which will be held on Friday afternoon, October 31, and Saturday, November 1, 2014. The keynote speaker this year is Felipe Pereda, Nancy H. and Robert E. Hall Professor of the Humanities at Johns Hopkins University. Graduate students from around the country will present a variety of compelling research papers in several sessions, each followed by critical discussion with our faculty, students, guests, and keynote speaker. Symposium papers are considered for inclusion in Athanor, an internationally-distributed journal published by the Department of Art History as a project of the Museum of Fine Arts Press in the College of Visual Arts, Theatre & Dance.
Symposium papers may come from any area of the history of art and architecture. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is August 1, 2014. Abstracts may not exceed 500 words, and should not include footnotes or images. At the top of the abstract, please include your name, the title of the talk, graduate level, and whether the subject originated in thesis or dissertation research. (This information is not included in the 500-word limit.) Send the abstract via email as a doc or docx attachment to Dr. Lynn Jones, Symposium Coordinator.
