GRADUATE GROUP SYMPOSIUM
This symposium offers an interdisciplinary engagement of thievery,
appropriation, and influence as creative strategies. Selected graduate
students will deliver papers from a variety of disciplines and Professor
Robert Nelson, Yale University, will offer remarks and response.
Professor Nelson has written widely within his own field of medieval
art, but his concerns extend to a broader discourse on the history
and methods of art history. His books include Hagia Sophia
1850-1950: Holy Wisdom Modern Monument (2004) and Later
Byzantine Painting: Art, Agency, and Appreciation (2007).
As co-editor of Critical Terms for Art History (2003),
Professor Nelson authored the entry on appropriation.
