Professors Joanne Allen and Kim Butler-Wingfield traveled to Chicago last week in order to present at the annual Renaissance Society of America conference. Founded in 1954, the Renaissance Society of America promotes the study of the period 1300–1650. The RSA brings together scholars from many backgrounds in a wide variety of disciplines from North America and around the world.

Dr. Allen organized a session called ‘Altarpieces and Architecture in Renaissance Florence’ which took place on Saturday, April 1st.  Her paper was entitled ‘Screening Images: Altarpieces and Tramezzi in Renaissance Florence.’

Dr. Butler co-organized a session entitled “The Visual and the Viewer in the Sistine Chapel,” which took place Thursday, March 30th.  Her paper was entitled “Beholding the Sistine Ceiling.”

Well done, professors!
