ANNOUNCING SEQUITUR!

December 1st, 2014 in General News, Graduate Student News, Side Bar

Announcing SEQUITUR, an online scholarly journal produced by the graduate students of the Department of History of Art & Architecture (HAA) at Boston University.

Founded in 2014 under the aegis of the Graduate Student History of Art & Architecture Association (GSHAAA) in collaboration with HAA, SEQUITUR is a biannual publication dedicated to addressing current events, issues, and personalities in art and architectural history.

Appearing in the fall and spring, SEQUITUR features essays, exhibition and book reviews, interviews, and research and field reports. Its purpose is to promote the scholarship and professional experience of HAA graduate students by providing an online platform through which to publish material and to acquaint students with academic editorial processes and peer review.

SEQUITUR engages with and expands current conversations in the field by promoting the perspectives of graduate students.  It seeks to contribute to existing scholarship and publications in the field by focusing on valuable but oft-overlooked parts of art and architectural historiography such as exhibition and catalogue reviews and reports on research in progress.

SEQUITUR showcases both the impressive work and far-reaching interests of the graduate cohort here at Boston University and of graduate students from around the world. The journal aims to provide an essential resource from which our readers may follow current happenings and new trajectories in the art world and art scholarship according to the next generation of art and architectural historians.

In the House and on the Web: 21st Century Strategies for Interpreting Historic Interiors.

October 22nd, 2014 in Uncategorized

92840_NHM letterhead_BODOn Friday, 3rd. October, Boston University’s Museum Studies Program hosted a symposium at the Boston Atheneaum, with Wellesley College’s McNeil Program for Studies in American Art, and the Nichols House Museum. Five speakers from Europe and the United States shared experiences of how their museums had successfully integrated technology into interpretations of their historic interiors and landscapes. Dr Lee Glazer spoke about the Freer Gallery’s use of digital technology to interpret Whistler’s famous Peacock Room as it appeared in London and Detroit:http://peacockroom.wayne.edu/visit.

Loic Tallon, Mobile Manager from the Metropolitan Museum in New York explained the processes behind designing the Met’s new app:http://www.metmuseum.org/visit/met-app. Annie Kemkaran-Smith, one of the curators with English Heritage, explained the changing use of digital technology in three properties in her care over the past decade, and Victoria Kastner described the development and use of apps at Hearst Castle. Finally, John Sibbald, Director of the Virtual Hamilton Palace Trust, described the virtual recreation of the collections at Hamilton Palace from inventories and accounts. The delegates made their way to the MFA for a tour of one of the Hamilton Palace rooms, now at the Museum, by Tom Michie, Curator of European Decorative Arts and Sculpture.

 

One-hundred-and-thirty-one people attended, comprising eighty-seven museum professionals from Massachusetts, Maine, New York, Florida and Delaware, and twenty-five students, mainly from Boston University and Wellesley College, as well as several professors from local universities. We ate at the Union Club, and an excellent day was had by all. This was the fourth symposium held in collaboration with the Nichols House Museum, and the eighth Museum Studies conference.

Creative Conflict

The 31st Annual Boston University Graduate Symposium on the History of Art
& Architecture

Conflict generates and transforms many works of art and architecture, both inspiring their creation and shaping their legacies. The 31st Annual Boston University Graduate Student Symposium on the History of Art & Architecture invites submissions that explore visual and material manifestations of discord among individuals, groups, nations, or ideologies.
Possible subjects include, but are not limited to, the following: works directly addressing disagreement, violence, and war; political posturing and persuasion; ideological dissent and inner turmoil; protective structures and objects such as armor, weaponry, and fortifications; and works subsequently impacted by conflict, including looting, vandalism, iconoclasm, wartime destruction and pillaging, accidental damage in times of riot or unrest, and disputes over the ownership and display of works of art.

We welcome submissions from graduate students at all stages of their studies, working in any area or discipline.

A paper title, an abstract (300 words) and a CV should be sent to the Symposium Coordinator, Sarah Parrish, at bugraduatesymposiumhaa@gmail.com. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, December 10, 2014.

Papers should be 20 minutes in length and selected speakers will be notified before January 1st. The Symposium will be held Friday, February 27 – Saturday, February 28, 2015, with a keynote lecture by Dr. Richard M. Leventhal, Executive Director of the Penn Cultural Heritage Center, at the Boston University Art Gallery at the Stone Gallery on Friday evening and graduate presentations on Saturday in the Riley Seminar Room of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

This event is generously sponsored by The Boston University Center for the Humanities; the Boston University Department of History of Art & Architecture; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Boston University Graduate Student History of Art & Architecture Association; and the Boston University Art Gallery at the Stone Gallery.

 

Graduate students from BU’s Department of History of Art & Architecture organize one of the longest running Graduate Student Symposiums in the country.
