October 14, 2017

Astronomy showing the stars to a group of scholars, Scholastic Miscellany, France, 1309-1316 (BL Burney MS 275, fol. 390v)

Please join the Index for a symposium and reception marking the centennial of our founding in 1917. Presentations by eight leading scholars will demonstrate the expansiveness and versatility with which art historians today approach what we continue to call “iconographic studies” and consider where the study of image and meaning will take the field in future years.
