September 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the Department of Art History at the University of Delaware, and also the 50th anniversary of
its graduate program. From its inception the Department sought to have a graduate, indeed a doctoral, program of the highest quality, while also
providing excellent courses and programs for the University's undergraduates. We plan to celebrate our anniversary with a festive conference
at Clayton Hall and the Trabant University Center on the University of Delaware campus, Friday and Saturday, September 30 to October 1, 2016.
Please hold these dates, and please consider coming to the event! We would love to have as many as possible attend our celebration. There will
be no fee for those wishing to attend, but please do visit our registration website. We will need
to know whether you plan to attend, and how many you expect to be in your party. There will be a banquet at Clayton Hall on Friday evening,
and lunch on Saturday, and for those portions of the event a fee must be paid. A block of hotel rooms has been reserved at the Courtyard
Marriott hotel on campus, and also at the Embassy Suites near the UD stadium complex, at a special rate for the first to make reservations, until
the rooms are gone.
The program will focus on our past and our future. Professor Wayne Craven, with William Innes Homer the co-founder of the Department, will
open the festivities, and Professor Damie Stillman will speak after lunch on Saturday. There will be a brief talk followed by a panel discussion
for each of the four sessions, featuring a range of our alumni from various eras in the history of the Department, including current students, and
with a current member of the faculty serving as moderator. It should be a great opportunity to see old friends and colleagues and to make new
ones, and to get some taste of the many things now happening in and around the Department. We will be embarking on a periodic self-study
later in the fall, to be followed by a full "academic program review" with outside visitors in the spring, and we very much look forward to
having the benefit of the perspectives and advice of our many friends and former students.
