Join MA students from American University and George Washington University as they present current art historical research covering a range of periods, from ancient to contemporary. Lunch box lunches will be provided.

Note: Picture above is from a blog post written by Catherine Southwick (one of the students who will be presenting at this symposium) about her trip to Paris. Claude Monet's The Argenteuil Bridge (1874) Musee d'Orsay.
