Friday, 3 June 2011

UCD School of Art History and Cultural Policy and UCD Humanities Institute Symposium

Date: Friday 3 June 2011

Venue: H204, UCD Humanities Institute seminar room

This symposium explores the theme of Ireland, the Mediterranean and book culture in the early modern period, exploring the prescience of Anglo-Irish travellers who were directly engaged with recording Mediterranean culture, and with its dissemination through print media. The symposium celebrates this desire to gather and transport knowledge with a view to providing new information and creating impetus for artistic movements such as neo-classicism in Ireland, Europe and beyond.
