Last spring, MASO hosted its first Graduate Student Lecture Series. Over the course of six evenings during the semester, nine students presented papers on a wide array of topics, ranging from Aaron Siskind and the sublime to art in the age of digital reproduction. Two professors also presented: Professor William Agee spoke on the lasting influence of Matisse’s The Red Studio (1911), and Professor Kim de Beaumont spoke on Gabriel de Saint-Aubin’s 18th century drawings of the Concert Spirituel in Paris. Thanks to the presenters’ talented work and the support of their Hunter colleagues who attended, the series was a success!
MASO is now welcoming paper proposals from MA and MFA students for a Fall Graduate Student Lecture Series. Presentations are to be no longer than twenty minutes and may cover any aspect of your work. A brief Q&A will follow each talk. Examples of papers include, but are not limited to:
· Term papers
· Thesis chapters
· Articles intended for publication
Proposals should include a presentation title, a 300-word abstract, and your Hunter status (MA student, MFA student). Please submit to firstname.lastname@example.org, with MASO lecture series proposal in the subject line. Submissions will be accepted until August 29, 2014. Participants will be notified by September 5 if they are selected to participate.
