The NIKI is pleased to invite you to the international CONFERENCE: "Material world: The intersection of art, science, and nature, in ancient literature and its Renaissance reception" on Friday 20-Saturday 21 April 2018.
This international conference is organized by our scholar-in-residence Guy Hedreen (Amos Lawrence Professor of Art, Williams College).
The conference is open to the public with no charge.
Pre-registration is required to guarantee seating:
The conference aims to generate significant insights across chronological and disciplinary boundaries by bringing together scholars of the early-modern literary and pictorial reception of classical texts and scholars of ancient art and literature. By taking a multi-disciplinary approach, the papers attempt to recover something of the dynamic discursive relationships between art, science, and nature that animate the ancient texts as well as their Renaissance reception.
Papers will be presented by Guy Hedreen, Courtney Roby, Mark Bradley, Caronlyn Yerkes, Sarah McHam, Morgan Ng, Dennis Geronimus, Domenico Laurenza, Verity Platt, Ernesto Paparazzo, and Gordon Campbell.
