Add to Calendar
Four students of the School of Art come together to discuss the crossovers of visual and verbal thinking in their work. Each will present their individual research projects, developed through an Independent Study in Humanities. Followed by a round table discussion of students’ collective experiences with art and writing, the gathering will create a space for the unity of the two fields.

This event is jointly facilitated by the School of Art and the Faculty of the Humanities.
Minh Bui will explore the intersections between "art" and "academic" practices by discussing both her own artwork and IS project as a case study.
Emma Faith Hill will discuss her continued research on fractured narration in fiction, as well as the portfolio of work she generated in her Independent Study with Professor Spector.
