On Friday, September 14, VCU’s interdisciplinary doctoral program in Media Art & Text (MATX) will inaugurate its annual faculty lecture series, The Cornis-Pope Lecture in Media Art & Text. The series honors Dr. Marcel Cornis-Pope, professor of English, the program’s founding director and an internationally recognized scholar in literary theory and modern and postmodern literature.
Each year one faculty member affiliated with the program will be selected to present his or her interdisciplinary research to the wider University community. This year’s lecture is “Franz Kugler: Becoming an Art Historian ca. 1830″, delivered by the current MATX director, Dr. Eric Garberson, associate professor of Art History. Dr. Garberson’s research examines the early formation of art history as a modern discipline in Berlin in the first half of the nineteenth century.
This event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
