35th Annual Graduate Symposium Recap and Photo Gallery

Published January 16, 2018

Congratulations to all who participated in our 35th Annual Graduate Symposium on October 6th & 7th, 2017.  Graduate students from ten universities presented and discussed their research with FSU students, faculty, and community members. The Symposium keynote address was delivered this year by Edward J. Sullivan, Helen Gould Sheppard Professor of the History of Art, New York University. Professor Sullivan presented “Samba as Metaphor: Performativity in Brazilian Art 1960s–1990s.” Special congratulations go to Nancy Karrels, who won the 2017 Günther Stamm prize for originality and presentation for her paper “Spolia and Memory in Post-Revolutionary France.”  For a complete list of last year’s talks, see the program.
