Art History Masters’ students go to Chicago to participate in the Newberry Library’s 2020 Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference

First-year art history students Hayla May and Lovisa Broberg were joined by second-year philosophy MA student Pierce Marks at the conference from January 23-25. There they presented their research, explored the benefits of OSU’s engagement in the Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium, and connected with graduate students from around the country.

Lovisa Broberg presented her paper Women of Discord: Re-examining Images of La Malinche in Sixteenth-Century Mexico, which resulted from her work in Dr. Cristina González’s course Art in Sixteenth-Century Mexico. Hayla May was a conference organizer and chaired the panel “Gender and Religious Transgression,” and gave a brief collections presentation on a sixteenth-century letter that relates to her research.

After the conference, the students made further use of their travels by visiting the Art Institute of Chicago.
