Haunting the Canon: The Super-phenomena in Art

April 23, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

LAIS is pleased to co-sponsor the Art History Graduate Student Association’s 45th annual symposium!

This virtual symposium is an opportunity for students and scholars across the humanities to engage in a critical dialogue while maintaining a focus on images and material objects. This year’s theme asks participants to challenge colonialist conceptions of mystical, spiritual, and alchemical subjects. We are honored to host Associate Professor of English at Fordham University Robb Hernández as our keynote speaker. His revisionist scholarship concerning alternative Latinx archives, AIDS, and speculative aesthetics will be of great interest to many scholars in our community.

More details coming soon…
