The Wollesen Memorial Graduate Symposium is the annual symposium for the Graduate Union of the Students of Art (GUStA) at the University of Toronto. It was inaugurated in 2014 as an enduring legacy and fond tribute to our esteemed late colleague Dr. Jens T. Wollesen. Dr. Wollesen joined the Department of Art at the University of Toronto in 1985. He specialized in the art of medieval Italy, Cyprus, and the Mediterranean basin with a particular focus in the relationship between image and text. He is also remembered as a professor dedicated to his pedagogical calling. He was the director of both the undergraduate and graduate programs at various times, and also served on the Art Committee of the University of Toronto’s Victoria University. His dedication as a professor led him to design a first-year Introductory Art History course which was widely acknowledged by students as legendary. His dedication to both graduate and undergraduate education remains his legacy, for which the yearly success of this symposium is a testament. It is made possible by the continuing support of his friends and family through the Jens Wollesen Memorial Fund.
