Symposium on Mechanisms of Exchange: Transmission, Scale, and Interaction in the Arts and Architecture of the Medieval Mediterranean, 1000- 1500
Friday, February 25, 2011
This symposium will bring together scholars working in art and architectural history to consider the mechanisms of cross-cultural exchange in the medieval Mediterranean world and specifically the question of how styles, motifs, and techniques were transmitted in the architecture and the monumental arts versus the portable arts. Speakers include specialists in western European, Islamic, and Byzantine art and architectural history.
This symposium is free and open to the public; registration in advance is required.
