This event takes place in the frame work of the Princeton Art & Archaeology Graduate Symposium “Has Anything Changed? New Strategies and Adaptive Methodologies in Art History Since COVID-19”

To conclude the Graduate Symposium, education and community engagement expert Damon Reaves will deliver a lecture in which he discusses the impacts of the pandemic on public engagement and access to art, related—but not limited—to the pivot towards digital spaces, social equity and inequity, and (re)designing programming and events. This lecture will take place in-person and will be live-streamed via Zoom. The lecture will be followed by a closing reception. This will be an opportunity for graduate students and symposium participants to gather and connect in-person over a Saturday morning brunch and reflect on the workshop series.

Please note that registration is required.

About the Symposium
The symposium centers on the theme of changes at a time of global crises. More specifically, it calls on participants to consider the effects of COVID-19 on scholarship in the humanities. Contributors to the symposium investigate how people and institutions must adapt to changing global circumstances, not only in the economic and political sphere, but in art, culture, and society.
