Conferences, Study Days & Academic Courses
Since the opening of the 200-seater Hawthornden Lecture Theatre in 2004, we have expanded our formal academic programme with a range of conferences, study days and academic courses programmed throughout the year.
Recent events have included a course on The Symbolist Landscape: Short Course led by Dr Jonathan Blackwood (17, 18 & 19 September 2012) and a major international conference, The Symbolist Landscape in Europe 19880-1910 on 4 & 5 October 2012.
Our next art history course responds to the exhibition, From Death to Death and Other Small Tales at the Gallery of Modern Art. Dr Jon Blackwood will deliver a course entitled Corporeality in Art (6-8 May 2013) which considers some of the ways in which the body - from birth to death - has been represented in European art since c.1750.
