Dual Faith: The Pagan Vestiges in the Religions of Eastern Europe
We are delighted to launch our 22nd annual conference with a panel presented and moderated by the undergraduates of the Art History Department.
The panel will be held on April 4 in the Lower Galleries of the Binghamton University Art Museum (1-2:15pm).
Here is more information about the presenters and their talks:
Mikey Kosowski is a sophomore who is majoring in art history and Russian studies. Mikey sees art history as a way in which he can develop a deeper and older passion, British history and visual culture, and is now beginning to explore his interests in Eastern Europe. His current research interests range from the interiors of Victorian Anglo-Catholic churches to the modern restoration of synagogue murals in Poland.
AHGSU is delighted to present a conversation between Prof. John Tagg (Binghamton University) and this year’s keynote speaker, Ariella Azoulay (Brown University).
Azoulay’s keynote address will be held on Saturday at 5:00, in FA 258. Read the abstract here.
