2009 marks the 5th anniversary of the UBC Art History Undergraduate Symposium.
This year’s Symposium will feature presentations from seven current undergraduate students studying Art History, Visual Art and Theory at the University of British Columbia. All student papers offer diverse methods of engaging with visual culture and are representative of the innovative nature of the UBC Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory. Each student presentation will be followed by a question and answer period from the audience. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The Symposium is entirely organized by the Undergraduate Art History Student’s Association and is financially supported by the Finance Commission of the Alma Mater Society of UBC.
