On behalf of the department’s search committee, I am pleased to announce the first candidate lecture for a faculty position in Medieval art history. Dr. Marius Hauknes will give a public lecture on Monday, January 30 at 5:00 PM in room 200 Riley Hall. The title of Dr. Hauknes talk is "The Image of the World in Medieval Rome.”
Marius Hauknes is a Harper-Schmidt Fellow in the Society of Fellows at the University of Chicago. His research and teaching explores the history of medieval art and architecture in a broad Mediterranean context, with a particular focus on intersections between art and intellectual history during the twelfth through fourteenth centuries. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Art & Archaeology at Princeton University in 2014. From 2014 to 2016 he was the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences at Johns Hopkins University.
Please join us for the lecture.
