THE UNIVERSITY OF ST. THOMAS DEPARTMENT OF ART HISTORY will host its fifth annual Graduate Student Research Symposium, WAR / ART / PEACE, Sept. 19-20, 2014. This symposium seeks to understand, in the context of multiple political, social and cultural climates, the influence of war and peace on art, architecture and design. What are the roles, or even responsibilities, of architect and artist during times of conflict and resolution? We welcome papers that address the concepts of artistic representation of war, global conflict, past and modern militia, justice, peace and reconstruction. Research may explore the cultural, methodological, theoretical and historical aspects of the topic across all time periods, media and geographical regions.
