Medieval Architecture Outside the Lines

On October 24, 2015, the Lamar Dodd School of Art of the University of Georgia will host six scholars of medieval architecture for a conference in memory of Professor Thomas E. Polk II. The theme of the conference addresses architecture “outside the lines” and, thereby, presents evidence for the wide intellectual, geographical, and chronological span of medievalism.

The six speakers are Lisa Reilly, University of Virginia, on “Normans In and Out of France”; Robert Bork, University of Iowa, on “Drawing Lines and Crossing Lines: Adventures Pursuing the Gothic"; Alice Klima, University of Georgia, on “The Shape of Reform in Fourteenth-Century Bohemia; Mendicants, Parishes, and Canons”; Sheila Bonde, Brown University, and Clark Maines, Wesleyan University, on “Seen one, seen 'em all?--What we learn from archaeological study of Carthusian Bourgfontaine”; and Kevin Murphy, Vanderbilt University, on “The Many Uses of the Gothic: From the Age of Historicism to the Rise of Modernism”.
