For the past 47 years, the Department of Museum Education has hosted an annual symposium for graduate students in art history at Midwestern universities.
Students are chosen by their universities because of outstanding research or writing projects, and a local faculty member acts as discussant to the panels. One of the papers will be chosen as a public lecture topic.
This year's seminar will take place April 13–14 in Morton Auditorium.
For more information, please call (312) 857-7129.
Participating universities have included Indiana University at Bloomington, Northern Illinois University, Northwestern University, Ohio State University, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Iowa, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, University of Missouri, University of Wisconsin at Madison, and Washington University in St. Louis.
