Art History colloquium: September 30th

by

Join us for the Art History Program’s colloquium “Art Between Europe & Asia in the First Global Age of Trade.” This colloquium will be held Friday, September 30th at 3:00 pm in Art 217. Timothy Brook, chair in Chinese Research at the Institute of Asian Research, University of British Columbia, will present “China on Vermeer’s Table: The Cultural Impact of Early Global Trade” and Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann, Frederick Marquand Professor of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University, will address “Reflections on World Art History.” The colloquium has been made possible by the generous support of Alan Templeton (UC Davis alum 1982), and by the Art History Program, the  Davis Humanities Institute, the Department of East Asian Studies and the Mellon Initiative in Early Modern Studies.

The VRF has some copies of material written by Brook and Kaufmann for review as well as their CVs. You may also want listen to this podcast interview of Brook by Russ Roberts on EconTalk.  For a flyer, click here. For more information, contact Jeffrey Ruda, Chair, Art History Program.
