Notes on Local/Global Ceramics Cultural Heritage and State Patronage in Europe Today

How is the cultural heritage of ceramics defined in the twenty-first century? What local and global issues are at stake in government support of ceramics production and preservation? Using comparative case studies, Assistant Professor of Art History and Director of Global Studies Meghen Jones will share observations from her recent International Fellowship for Faculty Development-funded research in Italy, France, and Germany.
The Bergren Forum sponsored by the Division of Human Studies, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Provost’s Office will be meeting from 12:10 pm - 1:00 pm on Thursday, September 19 in Nevins Theater, Powell Campus Center.
