The Department of French at NYU
announces its annual Graduate Student Conference:

… but is it art?

March 8th and 9th, 2013

The Department of French at NYU is pleased to invite papers which explore how art is defined, institutionalized and practiced in the Francophone world. We are interested in how boundaries are established and shift between the spheres of art and non-art, and will welcome submissions that deal with all artistic genres and media, spanning all historical periods. Papers are welcome to focus on individual authors or works, or to approach the topic more broadly.

Department of Art History and Communication Studies

4th Annual Graduate Student Symposium

April 26th, 2013

"We must habituate ourselves to think that every visible is cut out of the tangible, every tactile being in some manner promised to visibility, and that there is encroachment, infringement, not only between the touched and the touching, but also between the tangible and the visible,"
- Merleau-Ponty, The Visible and the Invisible

The graduate students of McGill's Department of Art History and Communication Studies invite you to consider the implications of the tangible in a one-day interdisciplinary graduate student conference.
