2018 Eleanor Greenhill Symposium

crowd of students and teachers in a lecture hall looking toward speaker

The Eleanor Greenhill Symposium is an annual event that provides an opportunity for Art History graduate students to present their research to the larger departmental and campus community. The symposium is designed both to encourage the sharing of ideas and to showcase the work of our graduate students. In addition to providing a space for students to share their scholarship, the symposium also provides an opportunity to mingle with other students and faculty.
