2020 Eleanor Greenhill Symposium

Mar 28, 2020 11:30 AM – 3:30 PM

Free and Open to the Public

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.

Special thanks to Student Government, The Fine Arts Library, The College of Fine Arts,  Professor Jeffrey Chipps Smith, Kay Fortson Chair in European Art; Professor John R. Clarke, Annie Laurie Howard Regents Professor in Fine Arts; and Central Market for their generous support of the 2020 Eleanor Greenhill Symposium.
