On Friday, January 22nd, the Department of Art History held the third of its new online speaker series, featuring Dr. Charmaine A. Nelson (Canada Research Chair in Transatlantic Black Diasporic Art and Community Engagement, NSCAD University). We had a fantastic (virtual) turnout, followed by an engaging Q&A session, with Dr. Nelson presenting a lecture that pursued a comparative exploration of slave dress, cultural preservation, and self-determination in Canada and British Caribbean islands like Jamaica and St. Vincent. A great big thanks to Dr. Nelson for helping us start 2021 on such strong footing, and thank you also to all those who attended and participated. Check back soon for more infomation on upcoming speakers and events!
