Andrew Ladis Memorial Trecento Conference

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 at Tulane University next week 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. Dr. Trachtenberg's keynote address, "Dante and the Moment of Florentine Art" will take place in Freeman Auditorium on Thursday, November 10 at 6:00pm. The keynote address is free and open to the public.

Tulane University's Newcomb Art Department is pleased to host the inaugural Andrew Ladis Memorial Trecento Conference with the generous support of the Kress Foundation, Villa i Tatti - The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, and the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South.
