The Newcomb Art Department is pleased to announce that the inaugural Andrew Ladis Trecento Conference will be held at Tulane University on November 10-13, 2016.
In the spirit of the tradition forged by the late Andrew Ladis and his colleagues at the University of Georgia, an international congress of Trecento specialists will congregate in New Orleans to share their research formally and informally. Scholars of all ages and stages will present specific art historical problems, issues, and ideas that focus on the arts of Italy during “the long fourteenth century” (late Dugento through early Quattrocento).
The keynote speaker at the Tulane conference will be Marvin Trachtenberg, Edith Kitzmiller Professor of the History of Fine Arts at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Thanks to the generous support of the Kress Foundation and other benefactors, we will not be charging any registration fees for this conference. Participants will be responsible for securing their own transportation and lodgings. More information, including options for lodgings, will be posted soon on the Tulane conference webpage as well as on Facebook. Conference registration will be on Eventbrite beginning May 1.
This will be the inaugural Andrew Ladis Memorial Trecento Conference and we are very excited! The plan is for the conference to be held every other year, with a new venue and host institution each time. The 2nd conference will be hosted by the University of Houston in Houston, TX, in Fall 2018.
