Randolph art history professor Lesley Shipley has been selected to co-chair a session for the Association of Art Historians Conference at Courtauld Institute of Art at King’s College London in April 2018.
Shipley and Mey-Yen Moriuchi, an art history professor at La Salle University, will co-chair the session, “Beyond Boundaries: Artistic Inquiries into Borders and Their Meaning(s).” Their proposal was one of only 30 selected out of 140 submissions from around the world.
For their presentation, Shipley and Moriuchi will discuss works of art, artistic practices, and art historical perspectives that think critically and creatively about borders and their meanings.
In addition to this latest honor, Shipley also was one of just 25 full-time college professors from across the nation selected to participate in the upcoming Council of Independent Colleges’ (CIC) 2017 seminar on Landscape and Identity in Britain and the United States (1770-1914). The program will be held at the Yale Center for British Arts from July 24-28.Tags: art, art history, Association of Art Historians Conference, faculty, faculty achievements, Lesley Shipley
