Tenth Annual Wollesen Memorial Graduate Symposium: Contretemps

September 26, 2023 by Department of Art History

The Graduate Union of Students of Art (GUStA) at the University of Toronto is pleased to present the Tenth Annual Wollesen Memorial Graduate Symposium, "Contretemps", in cooperation with the Department of Art History. The Symposium will be held on October 13–14, 2023, at JHB100 at the Jackman Humanities Institute, University of Toronto. Professor Erin Y. Huang from the Department of East Asian Studies and Professor SeungJung Kim from the Department of Art History will deliver this year’s keynote addresses. 

This symposium hopes to convene thoughts on time within a shared plane, recognizing the necessity for power struggles without reinforcing positions of temporal marginality or centrality. We will feature 16 papers from graduate departments and research institutions around the world. Scholars from across a variety of humanities disciplines will have the opportunity to present their research, collaborate with others, and engage in interdisciplinary dialogues.
