11th Annual Art History Undergraduate Symposium

The symposium comprises the presentation and discussion of a range of undergraduate research treating on contemporary and historical issues. This year’s topics examine a wide range of issues surrounding the displays of Northwest Coast art, the politics of body art, the aesthetic trajectory of serial imagery, the representation of national identities, and finally, a critical look at the notion of “fragmentation” in the postmodern. Each presentation will be followed by a conversation period during which all students and faculty are encouraged to voice questions and comments. Refreshments will be provided during intermission and final reception.

The Undergraduate Journal of Art History and Visual Culture (UJAH) will launch their sixth issue at the symposium. This publication features the exceptional body of research, art, and writing taking place in all undergraduate art disciplines at UBC, as well as the abstracts of this year’s symposium papers.
