New Academic Year

29 Aug

As the 2016-2017 academic year is about to kick off, a flurry of activities is upon us. In addition to the regular curriculum, several of our staff members will be presenting new books and exhibitions! On September 9, Javier Gimeno-Martínez will launch his book  Design and National Identity at the Design History Society Conference at the University of Middlesex. Sven Lütticken’s new book, Cultural Revolution: Aesthetic Practice after Autonomy, is due later this semester.

Meanwhile, Ivo Blom is co-curator of an exhibition on Lawrence Alma-Tadema that opens at the Fries Museum on October 1; the exhibition draws on Ivo’s research into the intermedial relations between nineteenth-century salon painting (in particular its representations of the ancient world) and twentieth-century film.

Finally, the Koos Bosma Lecture & Spatial Heritage Colloquium is to take place at the VU on September 22, in memory of our greatly missed colleague.
