The Courtauld Institute of Art Third Year PhD Symposium: Showcasing New Research 2016

The Coupg-symp-2016-imagertauld Institute of Art Third Year PhD Symposium: Showcasing New
The Courtauld Institute of Art, London
March 10-11, 2016

The Symposium is a platform for third year PhD students to present their
research and to initiate critical discussion about their materials,
media and approaches with a broad scholarly audience. The papers tabled
cover artefacts and images as diverse as medieval bronze tombs and
messages encrypted in digital images, and they deploy methodologies
that are attentive to questions of authorship, materiality,
performance, reception and interpretation. The Postgraduate Symposium
aims to debate and diesseminate the new research of its research
students and to promote intellectual exchange at all levels of the
degree programmes.
