Join the Center for Material Culture Studies on November 17-18 for their first biennial conference, "Imagined Forms: Modeling and Material Culture." Co-organizer Professor Sandy Isenstadt and five doctoral candidates—Jeff Richmond-Moll, Galina Olmsted, Kiersten Mounce, Anne Cross, and Emily Shartrand—will serve as panel chairs at the Hagley Museum.
This symposium will critically investigate the function and form of models, the materials and methods of simulation and representation, questions of scale and perception, experiment and presentation, and the limits of modeling from the perspectives of a wide range of disciplines, including art and architecture, art history, digital humanities, English, history, history of science, media studies, music, and women's studies.
Registration is free and open to the public. Visit Imagined Forms to view the full program and to register for this event.
In conjunction with Johanna Drucker’s keynote address for the symposium, there is a small exhibit in the University of Delaware Library’s Information Room titled “Johanna Drucker: A Selection of Artist’s Books.” Curated by Timothy D. Murray, Head of Special Collections at UD, the exhibit presents some of Drucker’s work in the UD collection. Drucker is internationally known for her scholarly work on the history of graphic design, typography, fine art, and digital humanities, and is an accomplished book artist and printer.
