American Visual Culture in Context: A Symposium in Honor of Professor Patricia Hills


In honor of the remarkable career of Professor Patricia Hills , “American Visual Culture in Context“, will be a wonderful opportunity to honor a beloved teacher and remarkable scholar, to hear nationally recognized art historians and American Studies scholars who also happen to have been her students, and to meet and network with Boston University alumni who are professionals in the humanities!   Composed of Professor Hills’  former students presenting their current research. It will both demonstrate Professor Hills’ profound influence upon the field of American Visual Culture and will provide a snapshot of the current state of the field.

The symposium, which will be followed by a reception, is free and open to the public.
